Whenever I install Windows 10 on my Kingston SSD it runs Ok for a time or two, but then it fails to boot each and every time. While starting up it enters the windows repair menu and to my dismay, none of the options work out. I have also tried Overwriting Windows setting files through Command Prompt mode as guided by some other forums, nothing helps. System Restore option also comes up with an error message.

Currently, I have installed Windows 10 using the same DVD on a Hard Disk. And guess what it runs without a glitch. The Hard Disk is now Primary and SSD is Secondary disk. I ran Health and speed test which came up with the SSD at 92% health, while the Hard Disk is at 100%.I'm also attaching the screenshots of the health and speed tests.

To sum up please guide me through some effective solution so that I can install Windows on my SSD.

My System

Boot into Setup (Bios) look for Hard Drive Mode or SATA. Make sure it is set to AHCI and not IDE or Legacy. If you are dual booting from the HDD and it was set to IDE, the HDD may not boot Windows, but there is a simple registry hack to fix that.
If you want to boot the SSD first, then in the Bios, go to the Boot tab. Move the SSD to First Boot Device.
Have you tried doing a Clean install on the SSD? Boot off of the Windows installer, choose your language , then Custom Install. In Where to install Windows, Delete ALL partitions so the drive is all Unallocated Space then go Next. Windows will create partitions and format them during the install. If the SSD is set to First Boot Device, after Windows installs it should boot.
Use Crystal Disk Info to see the Bad Sector count and more detailed health of the drive
