    D54250WYK, Intel SSD 530 180GB - disk read error




      I put together an D54250WYK with an Intel SSD 530 180GB, running Windows 7.


      Ever so often on reboot, it will fail on startup with the text-mode error "A disk read error has occurred - press ctrl-alt-del to restart".

      Sometimes I press ctrl-alt-del and next reboot system will power up.

      Sometimes I have to remove the power and wait 5 minutes and it will boot fine - if I try straight away it will continue to fail.


      I've run the Intel SSD Toolbox and done a full scan with no errors reported. The firmware on the drive is the latest available.


      Any thoughts on how I can resolve this? Any theories on if it is the drive or the system or something else?
