Watching flash video, MBP was extremely hot, screen turned white/grey pixilated. Restart would show Apple logo, but progress bar would always go half way, then the whole screen would go white. Reset PRAM. No change. Recovery mode would not launch via CMD R Internet recovery mode would launch via OPTION CMD R. Progress bar on internet recovery mode fills up completely, MBP restarts automatically, then white screen, no Apple logo. Used a TB cable to enter target mode from my iMac, First Aid found no problems. Used Disk Utility in target mode to wipe the aftermarket SSD. Launched internet recovery mode. Once again, the globe spun, progress bar filled up, MBP restarted automatically, then white screen, no Apple logo. Nothing. Just white screen. Made a bootable USB to install EL Cap on blank SSD. Held Option on startup, selected the bootable USB. Progress bar for install of EL Cap goes about 3/4 then white screen. No restart, just white screen. Am I right to think faulty SSD? Or are there other options to explore? Other possible hardware failure? FYI - just installed a new battery from OWC a month ago.
