After Sunday night OPS I went to reboot and got the BSOD. Tried everything in my power to get things going to no avail.
So I started popping cables. SSD only lets Windows boot cleanly, but when I plug in the spinny drive where most programs and data is stored - poof - BSOD. Did the shutting off of startup processes trying to find it and that led nowhere. Did the trying to restore from restore point, etc. is NoGo. Booting in safe mode lets me run in cripple mode and run some stuff installed on spinny but can't run Office because it can't verify the license. So something it is trying to load on the spinny drive and causing BSOD. This is really aggravating.
At least I have this laptop to poke around and research stuff. Probably going to get a new spinny and re-install all stuff on new drive, then move data over from backups. Sigh. I figured my SSD and Windows drive would be the thing that eventually hosed me, but nooooooo.
So I will be AWOL till I get it sorted out. Sigh.
