    Ok so the MBP in my sig has a OWC 6G Pro SSD in it. OWC released a firmware update so I applied the update and everything works except my bootcamp partition. It says loading windows and then the screen goes black and the sleep light comes on and fades in and out.

    After hard restarting and I can enter into safe mode and everything is fine. Why can't I access my partition the normal way though???

    You might want to try contacting OWC's support.

    I need a quick fix. AKA by tonight. I assume the drives map got messed up and the OS can't find the path?

    Yes, I have a backup but I'd prefer not to have to do this as I'm trying to keep the writes to a minimum.

    An OS is constantly writing to the drive, one more restore isn't going to hurt it.

    Boot into windows safe mode and fix that partition from there.

    Connecting my MBP to my external display and then adjusting the settings from there worked. Firmware somehow disabled the built in display.
