    Hello Guys,

    I own a MacBook Air mid-2014 (non-retina) 128 GB. Recently there was an update in macOS 10.12.x.
    I left my laptop for update overnight and found to be dead on morning.

    Went to apple care and came to know that my SSD is dead! Well, I thought it may be a co-incidence that the SSD died just after OS update ( as OS update is a software stuff and shouldn't be affecting the hardware issues).

    Due to apple's high charges, I collected my laptop and got a second-hand SSD installed from local vendor (he took out the SSD from another mac air in front of me).

    Well the laptop seems fine and working smooth till I updated it AGAIN ! DAMN !

    The SSD again died after update !!!!

    Well now I am confused what is the reason, how can a software update crash a SSD.

    My laptop doesn't boot at all, I have tried the troubleshooting points mentioned on forum and other websites.
    (Doesn't even boot in safe mood)

    Anyone with similar experience or advise what to do ?

    Have you tried a clean install? Sounds corrupted at the startup volume.
