I have a pc that does not have an OS Installed, and has an old SSD: Crucial BX100 SSD. 

 

I need a Bootable Tool to test the drive if possible.  I would like to test it to see if it is healthy, but cannot find a tool that can be booted to do this.  Does anyone know how I can do this without to much trouble?  Otherwise I'll install Windows 10 and run the Crucial Tool from there, but want to avoid that work if possible.

 

I was thinking to break out my trusty Linux and do it from there, but have had mixed results with Linux testing HDD's with smartmontools.

 

UPDATE: I've researched this and seems as though I can do this with Linux, so will attempt that again.

 

Thanks, pc

CrystalDiskInfo will read the smart information on the drive.  and tell you the health status.

Done, went ahead and installed windows 10 and checked the ssd out inside of W10, all is good.  Linux would not work for some reason.
