That is a great question we are trying to figure out. The behavior you describe is usually found on Bolts on TE4 interface but not TE3. Which interface are you on?Here what I've discovered so far;
The Bolt + will not get past the Starting UP screen with an SSD. I tried two Crucial SSDs, one the 3.8 and the other a 2TB.
However, the Bolt will start and load with a 6TB Seagate hard drive. Also with a 2 TB Seagate hard drive.
Wondering what it is about the SSD that is causing the failure.
