My ThinkPad T430s notebook with Windows 8 64 bit always freezes after start. It takes about 30s to 1 min until it freezes. If I disable the mini SSD(15G) in my notebook, it will work well. But every time I enable the SSD, the problem comes back. Does anyone have an idea how to solve that problem?

run a diag tool and look if the SSD has SMART errors. The mini-SSD is used as Cache. Make sure you use the latest Intel drivers. – magicandre1981 Apr 23 '13 at 9:15
