Win 10 was working great for months, but yesterday went into a reboot loop with a blue screen error "page fault in nonpaged area". Recover option also failed - crashed with same error.

I downloaded latest bios and win 10. Flashed bios OK. But install of Windows fails with "The disk you specified is not MBR formatted." Of course I did not format it - the installation wiped the disk.

I suspect some "sectors" on the eMMC have gone bad. Would be good to know if there is any way to tell the eMMC controller to mark them off as bad. I
tried using Windows format to zero out the device, but that failed - even multiple tries:

After assigning the main Windows partition to drive d: using diskpart:

Code: Select all

> format d: /fs:ntfs /p:1 /x
The type of the file system is RAW.
The new file system is NTFS.

Proceed with Format (Y/N)? y
Formatting 57.7 GB
Volume label (32 characters, ENTER for none)? Windows
Creating file system structures.
Format complete.
   57.7 GB total disk space.
   57.6 GB are available.
Format failed.

> dir d:\
The volume does not contain a recognized file system.
