  1. 20210404 0942AM I bought another SSD to rule out PC problem. Unfortunately Fortunately, Silent Hill 4 could run in the new SSD. Info about my storage: Disk 0: Toshiba Sata HDD MQ01ABD100 > K Drive Disk 1: Toshiba Nvme SSD KXD5ULN11T92 > C Drive <- Windows 10. Clean install > D Drive Disk 2: XPG SX8200 Pro Nvme SSD SX8200PNP > E Drive > F Drive Things i tried to trigger the same issue in the new SSD but failed: 001. Disable Enable write caching on the device Device Manager > Write-caching policy > This option is not available for my Toshiba SSD This device does not allow its write-caching setting to be changed 002. Create One/Two Basic Data Partition > No issue to launch the game menu for either one or two partition Planning to clone my Toshiba into the new SSD later.
