My brother has bought a X260 last fall off-corporate lease (TYPE 20F5-S17WOK 16/06), wiped clean. It worked fine, until one day it started giving away intermittent boot errors, then stopped booting altogether.
It still boots Ubuntu from a USB stick, and Memtest86+ runs fine, so I thought it must be an SSD that gave up the ghost. So I bought and installed a new SSD. Same thing.
Now, it occured to me that I should have connected SSD to a SATA port of my desktop computer - and sure enough, both old and new SSD pass the diagnostic check.
Should be the cable, then. Though I wonder how could it become damaged up there inside the laptop, if it wasn't tampered with?
