This is a weird one, So I had a power outage yesterday - system went down. No big deal, I go to reboot, recovery loop. So now I'm thinking my install got a corrupt driver or otherwise - something is toast with my windows install.
But I couldn't help but notice that after a failed normal windows boot - my system would restart and the sdd activity light for M.2 (my boot drive) would continue flashing away and wouldn't stop, even in bios; without a full power down. Stranger still, when it was exibiting this behavior (basically after 1 failed boot/reboot cycle) the SSD would no longer be detected as a boot option or in a windows installer. Very odd and random. I didn't have time to mess with it before work so I leave things here.
 
Come home, and what do you know - IT BOOTS FINE. ****? so the magic ghost posessing my micro2 was appeased by 4 hours of doing nothing - which is odd because I tried a 30 second PSU UNPLUGGED power drain - so that's not why. I got no idea, but whatever - we're back.
But I'm thinking that whatever this gremlin is - I'd rather just TRY a nuke. So I reinstall windows 10 2004, no problems.
 
Except one, and this is weird, the 2nd and 3rd error led below my socket are flipped on whenever windows loads now - the system is working fine however. What the * Removed TOS Violation* is going on? Speculations? Suggestions?

    Hey, Thanks for getting back to me. The micro 2 switches to cpu temperature monitoring on the post code after boot which is normal behaivor - so no post code. As stated previously, the system IS WORKING but yet every boot those LED's light up as windows 10 loads and stay on as long as the system is running.
     
    I've turned on and off fast boot in both windows and bios, doesn't do diddly. I'm happy to chalk this up to don't know - don't care, but it's real strange huh?
     
    Also I gotta wonder how or if it's related to the strange M.2 behaivor after that power outage - where the system would try to load windows, fail and reboot. Here is the sequence for clarity
     
    Power on
    Windows bootloader
    spinning orbs
    reboot (no bsod, just orbs to blackscreen)
    m.2 activity light stays on but drive is not detected
    kicks to UEFI/BIOS
    tried booting usb installer - no m.2 detected, activity light is still going.
    power off
    activity light off
    repeat cycle.
