Hello there!


PC is Minix NGC-1 (4GB RAM/Celeron N3150/128GB Toshiba M.2 SATA SSD), Windows 10 installed, seemingly discontinued.  Using it for a month; was new.

Windows asked me to scan drive for errors.  Ran CHKDSK (using "C: /f /r /x") - rebooted, scanning and repairing device got to 13% then blue screen asking for restart.  Restarted and it booted to shell.  Only boot option is UEFI shell and disk shows as total 20MB unallocated.

Now assuming SSD is unsalvageable.  (Had no important data on it anyway.)

Currently using the PC with live Ubuntu USB - works fine.

Need to know if replacing the SSD will be enough to fix the PC.

Thanks in advance.
