I'd try booting from another device if possible. You can download Linux images for a USB stick or, if you have a CD drive, do a search for the Ultimate Boot CD for Windows.

Yes, 'satafirm a11' seems to be the controller for a SSD drive.

It seems unlikely that Windows 10 would have trouble supporting anything as modern as a SSD. Perhaps it's just gone bad. Is it your boot drive?

You don't have to write songs. The world doesn't want you to write songs. It would probably prefer it if you didn't. So write songs if you want to. Otherwise, dont bore us with beefing about it. Go fishing instead.
