HW: NUC8BEH with 250GB M.2 SSD for ROCK and 4TB SATA SSD for Music
I’m having a very strange problem with my NUC8. Now already for the third time my M.2 SSD in the NUC died after 2-4 weeks operation.
I get an error message at the system start, which says “SMART status bad, backup and replace”. This message has to be confirmed with F1 to continue booting.
Roon OS still boots and is reachable, but on the ROCK status page is displays “Roon Database & settings: Not ready”. Pressing the Reset button doesn’t help.
I also tried to repair the Roon installation with the bootable USB stick. When I do this, I get an error message “Failed to mount /identity”
As I said, this now happened the third time since I have the NUC. When I replace the M.2 SSD, it works without problem for 2-4 weeks, then above mentioned problems start again.
Could it be a problem of the NUC? My HW store is a bit clueless, since they don’t know ROON/Rock at all and everything outside the standard Windows routine seems suspicious.
I’ll be watching this too.
Also have a NUC 8, i5 version.
Im actually using an M.2 that is not listed as certified by Intel as I had it laying around when I assembled the NUC and cheaped out not buying new.
My M.2 is Adata brand.
No problems, so far…
Will see what happens.
I did that every time. The fault behaviour somehow indicates a different problem. Every time, I install a new SSD, it works flawless for 2-4 weeks, then it dies with the mentioned symptoms. Last time my HW store tried to do a low level format on the SSD (on a different computer)n and even that failed.
If you have no other hint, I would assume it has to be a HW defect in the NUC. Would you support this assumption?
