Q: ThinkPad W530 Windows 10 INACCESSIBLE BOOT DEVICE after Windows Update 4056892 (possibly UEFI issue)

Getting a BSOD after the update above. Appears the offending file is listed as an UEFI related system file. Running Windows 10 with all latest updates (other than one above) and all drivers updated through Lenovo System Update. System Repair unable to do anything useful. Was able to restart from a backup, but the update continues to destabilize the system after application. Anyone have any solutions other than cancel Windows Updates? Thanks,RMNY

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

Hi. I'm running Windows 7 Professional 64-bit. Yesterday I installed some new Windows Updates. Everything went fine, but when I restarted my PC in the morning, it would not boot because the "device is inaccessible." Huh??? I ran Startup Repair from my installation disk and that was unsuccessful. Chkdsk did not help either. The bootable OS is on a Toshiba 128GB SSD I recently purchased, and along with the OS only programs are on the drive. All my files are on separate HDDs.

I reinstalled Windows on my old HDD partition (of course I had to go and format it since I thought the SSD was finally stable enough and I didn't need that old OS partition anymore >__>) and ran TestDisk on the SSD. I tried repairing the boot files or something but it told me that the Backup Boot Sector (I think it was?) was not writable and that it couldn't repair. I am still able to access the SSD and its files with no problems. I just can't seem to boot from it. It'll be starting up and then flash a blue screen for a split second (too fast for me to read what the text says) and then restarts.

I'm thinking of reinstalling all my programs on this fresh install of Windows (after I get MS to reactivate my product code but that's another story) and then cloning it over to the SSD. That's a real pain though so if I can somehow get my PC to boot off the SSD again that would be best. Any ideas??

A:Can't boot b/c "device inaccessible" after Windows Update (SSD)

if you can get into the recovery with a startup disk then run bootrec.exe /fixboot and see if it helps might also have to do rebuildbcd take a look at this http://support.microsoft.com/kb/927392 before attempting it. and make sure it does it to the right drive(might want to unplug all of them except for the ssd including external drives).

Can't access pc after changing to windows 10. Can't get anything except a blue screen and constantly recycling 'inaccessible boot device' and we'll restart for you. Took several hours downloading osl (or whatever) on my laptop and; put it on usb and tried that in my desktop but that was no good either. Also tried original windows 7 disc and a boot disc that I bought and also the backup discs none of which have any affect. I can't afford a new pc on my pension and I can't afford to take it to a mechanic. Any clues anybody?

Hi all

Hope someone can help me

My windows 7 hdd will not boot up. I get an error message saying:

The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible


Now I have tried startup recovery several times with no luck.

I have tried bootrec.exe and tried to rebuild it but no luck

I have tried to use the recovery disks I made when I first bought the laptop but it doesnt allow me to select the repair windows files and preserve files options. It allows me to select the fresh windows install option however when I do it it always fails and says a path cannot be found.


I have tried the chkdsk/r in command prompt to fix any problems and that was successful but still no luck.

here is a screen shot of my disk management, it is disk 1



I just need access to my files on there. I have tried to mount it via acronis so it works as an ordinary disk but it doesnt pick it up



Please could someone help

rdubayah,
If your computer was running WIndows 10 without any issues prior to downloading the Anniversary update, then you would not have had to change any settings in the bios to install the update.The UEFI and Secure Boot settings are to enable booting with a USB or DVD to install Windows.
Disable Legacy Boot Mode and Enable UEFI
Start the computer and TAP the F2 key to enter the bios. Once in the bios Press F9 to Restore the bios to the Default Settings. F10 to save changes and exit. You could have a hardware problem. To run a hardare diagnostics on the computer you would start the computer and TAP the F5 key. Insert a cd/dvd in the optical drive for running the diags.

Hello,

For days one of our computers here at work has been acting strange....booting to windows, then rebooting. I booted to safe mode, then restarted to normal mode it seemed fine...then one day...blue screen! The error "inaccessible boot device error" comes up when windows trys to load. I can F8 to pick safe mode, but it returns to the blue screen.
Any thoughts on how I can fix this problem? I have searched for answeres but there is nothing to really grab hold of and work through.

On another note, while this first computer was out of commision I moved one of our other computers over to that workstation..and two days later it started acting funny too. No blue screen yet but did the restarting thing today and also went to a black screen with one line saying HD error. What gives?? As a side note, both computers had a automatic windows update happen recently. Also, I was wondering, could a faulty battery backup device be the cause of this? A virus?

Thanks so much for any help at all.

This may seem stupid, but I have an old HP t5500 Thin-Client which I have altered and hooked up an IDE hard drive to. The BIOS detects the HD just fine, and I can install any version of linux without fail from the external cd drive. The challenge for me is to install Windows 2000/XP. Every time I try to boot from the windows disk, it loads the drivers, then before it loads the partition screen, it BSODs on me and gives an INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE error. From what I've read, I traced it to the USB drivers loading too late in the setup process for it to continue loading from the USB CD drive.

I've even tried hooking an IDE cd drive directly to the motherboard but it refuses to boot from it, and there's no way to manually select the boot device by pressing any F(1-12) key.

Settings are configured correctly in the BIOS to boot from the Flash RAM (or in this case, any IDE drive), and I do have USB booting capability.

What I want is to install from my USB CD drive.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Andrew

I have a question about Windows cloning on the Y470. I tried to clone my system to an SSD using the Windows 7 backup/restore feature, but I'm getting an error that says "The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible". The error suggests using the Windows install disc to fix the problem. Does Lenovo provide a physical disc or ISO for Windows? I tried downloading the ISO directly from Windows using my serial number, but I got an error telling me to contact the computer manufacturer instead. Alternatively, if they can't provide a Win7 install disc, do you know if the computer's built-in Lenovo OneKey backup tool will work? It takes several hours to create and then restore a full system image, so I don't want to repeat the process without confirming that this is the proper solution.

Dear forumreaders,

Thanks for reading my post.

After a whole weekend of searching, trying different options... I don't know what to do anymore.

After installing windows 8, which worked fine, my desktop suddenly freezes at any given time.
Reboot is the only option. (I boot in AHCI for what it is worth).

I've tried installing in IDE mode, same result.

We've come up with the option that it is the drivers.
Allright, I update my driver of my motherboard to windows 8 x64 version (Motherboard is ASrock B75 Pro3).
When I do this, in IDE or in AHCI, at reboot it crashes giving the failure INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE.

I'm getting nuts... how to fix this?
Has it to do with registery settings? Other boot options in BIOS?

Many thanks,

Just got a new Lenovo Thinkpad W530, swapped out HDD for a Corsair Force GT 180GB SSD, and now using the HDD as a secondary drive in place of my DVD drive. I also installed 16gb of Corsair Vengeance memory along with 8gb system memory (did this prior to the hard drive swap, and wasn't getting any BSOD).

It seems to get the Kernel_data_inpage_error after the computer has been shut down for more than 10 minutes.

Another strange thing I noticed, was upon doing a fresh install of windows 8 with my recovery media, I noticed the C drive (SSD), seemed to have had an extra 20 GB all of the sudden used up after restarting and getting BSOD.

After doing another install of windows, I checked the hard drive space and I was at 125 GB free space (166GB total usable space on the SSD), then after shutting it down for the night, and turning it back on in the morning, I got the BSOD and also checked the SSD to see if the space had changed, sure enough it had gone down to 101GB of free space (I had not installed any programs or drivers yet), which doesn't add up when calculating the space on each folder in my C drive. Any idea what's going on here?

Here is the SF Diagnostic report, any help would be greatly appreciated! Laptop seems to be working fine other than BSOD on start up, and the mysterious missing 20(ish)GB of space on my SSD.

Issues with this device:

Find it in Device Manager. Right click and select "Uninstall". When done uninstalling, reboot the system and see if the device returns as a problem or not.

We've seen a number of BSOD issues with SSD's. Here's the information that I've compiled so far:





There's not a whole bunch available to test SSD's. The "easiest" test is to remove the SSD, install a platter-based hard drive, install Windows and test for stability that way.

Here's some suggestions:
- Update the SSD's firmware to the latest available version (VERY IMPORTANT!!!)
- Update the motherboard controllers drivers to the latest available version from the controller manufacturer (NOT the mobo manufacturer unless you can't find any on the controller manufacturer's website)
- Slow the memory (RAM) down to the next slower speed (I've only seen one person who claimed that this worked for them).
- Use any manufacturer's utilities that you may have. If you don't have any, then try this free one (I haven't used it myself): Crystal Dew World
- Update chipset and storage controller drivers to the latest available from the manufacturer of the device (not the manufacturer of the motherboard). Be sure to update ALL controllers on the motherboard!

Hi there
A colleague of mine got an HP ENVY ultrabook with W8 pre-installed plus a retail W8 pro upgrade for an extra 22 EUR.
He asked my to see if I could upgrade the machine to W8 Pro and install the IS display language pack for him.

The system has one of those wretched UEFI Boot thingy's in the BIOS.

I haven't been able to upgrade the installed windows 8 to Windows PRO -- and even trying to install from scratch via booting from an external USB DVD drive it just says after about 15 mins through the process "Windows 8 cannot be installed".

Fortunately the version of ACRONIS I use works with UEFI boot so I managed to take a backup before I started and was able to restore the original image that it had when it came out of the store -- I'd wiped the HDD when trying to install the Retail W8 Pro version- but the restore worked fine so the machine is in exactly the same state as it was when it came out of the store.

However I still would like to upgrade the machine to W8 Pro - mainly in order to change the display language from En to Is and to allow remote desktop connection to THIS computer.

You need at least W8 Pro for RDP to work correctly --you can RDP to OTHER machines using any version of W8 - but you need at least W8 PRO to allow incoming RDP connections.

Any help on upgrading a UEFI BIOS enabled machine to W8 Pro. The W8 PRO is the RETAIL version -- and the Windows version is X-64 English.

Get right down to the drive with a paper

HEAR the drive starting up. If not, it's
a dead puppy.

If you DO hear it running smoothly, then
the boot sector has been corrupted. You
Might try booting with floppies - just so
you can access the C: Drive. If you can,
then run "chkdisk" on it.

Hi, Let me assume that a bios supervisor password is already set.I wonder how to change the Bios settings to a configuration which is suitable for Windows 10. (e.g. TPM 2.0/PTT enabled, UEFI enabled, Secure Boot enabled,  CSM disabled, Device Guard enabled, etc.)The change should be done with no user interaction at the system side. Therefore we are looking for a script or tool. So far I could find some pieces, e.g. that enabling "Secure Boot" using WMI will activate ?UEFI Only? mode in Bios, at least for ThinkPads; or the use of SRSETUPWIN to activate TPM2.0. But here the complication starts. The switching can only be done when the TPM 1.2 is not owned or active. I discovered that with powershell there should be options to reset the TPM, but I am not the programming guy and that is why my efforts were not successful. What I am missing is some kind of guide from Lenovo on how to achieve the challenges that will show up with a migration from Windows 7 to 10 in an enterprise environment. Some explaining scripts or guidelines which can be followed on implementing in e.g. SCCM. Hope you can offer some clues.Thanks in advance.

Hello everyone,I am new to this forum, and of course, have question. I am just about buying a P71 but was puzzled with the info of the dealer, that I cannot get the machine without a preinstallation of Win 10 as it is "branded" in the UEFI. Does this mean the Win 10 license is fixed and I cannot just use a new Win 10 Pro package?I always prefer to do that installation by myself from a pure new dvd or usb. Now, if I wipe off the SSD, than I will need to obtain the Win 10 license over the UEFI or can I use a new one as well? As far as I read here in the forum, a fresh installation seems possible with some hassle.May I experience some problems here? I believe the preinstallation includes some additional Lenovo software as well as some necessary drivers. I would assume that all drivers I should be able to obtain from Lenovo pages.I do understand, that Lenovo may optimally sets up those machines to some extent, but....I am little bit irritated by that policy - giving the buyer no choice. Many thanks in advance. Greetings, Joe

A:Thinkpad P Series Windows 10 UEFI branded?

If you buy a machine that has a windows 10 pro license pre-installed, you can download a fresh copy from MS and install over it.  It will activate automatically and will not require a new key to be purchased.  If you buy a machine with 2 drives and want to reinstall, I suggest removing the non-boot disk before installing. Also, I suggest installing onto a wiped drive.  That will make sure your boot loader is on the right disk.  You can do this in the install process with a custom install.  You can then add your other drive(s) back in.  (obviously, my suggestion should be modified if you want to use a RAID on your boot drive.)

Every things works with normal Legacy mode in our environment and k2000.

Laptop: ASUS UX31A-DB71, latest BIOS: 218

Originally my laptop came with Windows 7 and when i looked at disk management my disks were formatted with UEFI schema. One of my friend gave me a UEFI bootable USB drive loaded with Windows 8. So, i thought why not give it a try. So, I created a backup of my OEM Windows 7 and saved the iso files in a seperate external HD (created twice just to be sure . Now, i decided to load the Windows 8. Booted into the BIOS and there is an option to select the USB drive along with the UEFI option for that USB drive. I selected the UEFI option but some reason it does not boot into UEFI. So i decided to select the standard USB install and this option let me install windows 8. In the process of installing i formatted the partitions and made a single partition and installed Windows 8 on it. I am guessing now the drive is not GPT but MBR. I also noticed that his installation USB disk had an option to select either 32bit or 64bit of Windows 8...I find this kind of odd. Would Microsoft create a same iso file with both versions? I am guessing he created the USB from a illegitimate source.
I am planning on purchasing Windows 8 Pro version as an iso but wanted to be confident that it would work with UEFI architecture.

I have also tried both the normal and the legacy settings for SATA operation in the BIOS. I have since run across this issue with a Lenovo desktop as well.

Hello! After yesterday (05.09.17) system update which was the only option to shut down my PC, I cannot start it. The automatic fix program said it was the error designated as Inaccessible Boot Device. I tried the system restore from two recent restore points offered by my PC. Didn't help. I tried startup repair - didn't help. System image recovery didn't work because windows couldn't find a system image on my computer. Not sure if I would like to try to reset my PC since this will bring the state when I got my PC by deleting all the software packages I installed but saving personal files. Is there any option I can fix my desktop without doing reset? Thank you.

Welcome to this forum. > The automatic fix program said it was the error designated as Inaccessible Boot Device. From what you write, below, it seems like that *WAS* the error, and that it *FIXED* the error, so that your boot-device (the disk-drive) once again is "bootable". > I tried the system restore from two recent restore points offered by my PC. Didn't help. Sigh.  But, it is good that it did boot from your boot-device, to get to the point where it offered this option. > I tried startup repair - didn't help. Sigh.  Did you try this repair a second or third time, to see if there were errors that were not fixed the first time? > System image recovery didn't work because windows couldn't find a system image on my computer. Sigh. > Not sure if I would like to try to reset my PC since this will bring the state when I got my PC by deleting all the software packages I installed but saving personal files. Windows 10 has a "refresh my PC" option, which they claim will reinstall Windows, without affecting your personal files and your other applications.  But, don't go there, just yet. > Is there any option I can fix my desktop without doing reset? Only a "long" path: * buy a new disk-drive;* disconnect the old disk-drive, and set it aside, for a while;* connect the new disk-drive;* reinstall Windows.  Since you have been running Windows 10, you have a "digital entitlement" ...

My MOBO went out and I had to replace it.. After I finished, the Windows2000 splash screen came up for about 2 seconds then I got the "Blue Screen Error" "Inaccessible_Boot_Device".. I tried booting with the w2k installation cd <no luck, same thing happened>.. Was going to try to boot using the MSDOS boot disk <but lost the darn disk>

Anyone know what the heck I can do short of Deleting my Hard drive??

Please keep in mind I have limited funds..

I'm trying to install windows 2k on this pc and it's giving an inaccessible boot device error(code 0x0000007B)

the real problem is that there shouldn't be a problem.
I resized my main partition to make 2gb of unallocated space.
I partitioned and formatted the space as NTFS
I can access it from vista and move files freely into and out of it,
but when I try to install win 2k it gives a bluescreen error after loading its components.

I'm trying to put 2k on so I can play metal fatigue, system shock, and other old games.

I'm confused as to how there is any error at all.

After researching and tinkering, i have found out that i need to get the SATA controller drivers for my motherboard. I have a Dell XPS 410 but i can't manage to find anything useful on the dell site, I need to know where I can find a SATA controller driver. HDD is a WDC WD5000AAKS in case you need to know.

I don't have a motherboard disk and I don't have the Dell drivers and utilities disk, which probably wouldn't have it anyway.

I've been hvaing problems recently with a hard-drive. It no longer boots and gives me this message:

I've tried looking this up at the Microsoft site, and it's not very enlightening I've also run AVBoot, but it didn't find anything wrong. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what this problem might be, and if it's at all fixable?

Thanks!

Ive had a blue screen appear when i try to start-up windows XP. It says that there has been an error and that windows has shut down to prevent problems.
It didnt disappear so i was forced to reboot windows, that is now in a new partition with little space, the old drive is still there, but still shows the blue screen when i try to start it up.
I am looking to fix this error but have no real idea what the problem with it is. I am a reasonably good novice with pc's and have tried running both 'chkdsk' and 'fixboot' with the Windows recovery centre, both to no avail.

Any help on this matter would be nice, and anyone who knows how to fix it would be greatly received.

The full Technical Information on the message reads:
*** STOP: 0x0000007B (0xFA2C7640, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

I am running a computer with: AMD Athlon XP 2400+ 2ghz, 224mb RAM.

Please ask for anything else you may need to know, but as i say i am quite a novice. Please help.

hmmm......have you checked the hdd for any errors. if your internet is working fine, i recommend going to the manufacturer's website of your hdd and download their diagnostics utility.

then boot up with it, follow the on-screen instructions, and test your hdd for any errors.

Signed up for DSL. Got the modem and the installation disk. Started through the process. Stopped me and said I didn't have an ethernet card, which I do, but had previous problems so maybe it was uninstalled.

Went out and bought a new ethernet card. Installed in an open PCI slot. Tried to install the drivers off the floppy provided. Got error message that inf file did not match the one specified. Took the card out; took out the old ethernet card; put the new one in that slot; tried again. Same error message.

In the meantime, my 5-year-old turned off the power source while the computer was on. When I tried to power up again, I got the following error message: ***STOP: 0x0000007B (0xF081B84C, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000) INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE.

I am using Windows 2000 Professional, installed on my home computer by the IT guy at work, who now does not have time to try to fix it.

I unplugged the hard drive, took out the new ethernet card, turned on the computer again, but I keep getting the same message.

Keeping in mind that I'm not very computer literate, can someone walk me through the steps I need to do to get the darn thing to work again?????

Welcome to the forums

one option since this a dell is to call tech support and get their help. it is a dell and everyone raves about dells tech support - so make sure to let us know how good they are. Dell also has a great feature in that you can restore it to its bought condition. Again, you have to get dell support to do this. if you have data you want to save, you lose that however. dell should be able to help you access your bios and make sure the boot device is turned on...doc

Installed 8.1 upgrade from 8.0. Now have inaccessible boot device blue screen. I can't run chkdsk /f becase I get a write only  rejection. Is there a program I can use ?
 

A:inaccessible boot device

How did you do the upgrade?  With a disk or downloaded or ??  You can try booting off the windows disc and choosing the option to repair windows installation.  It sounds to me like you have a corrupt driver.

Hi

Windows 2000 pro
Last night when l was running out of my office l was in a real hurry to catch a train and when l tried to shut dowm my IBM Thinkpad 650x it froze so l manually shut it down but when l tried to start it up again this morning l saw the following;

*** STOP: 0x0000007B (ox81423030, )xc0000032, oxc000032, ox0000000, 0x0000000)
Inaccessible boot device.

If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

Check for viruses on your computer. Remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers. Check your hard drive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated, run CHKDSK/F to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer.
How can l check my computer for a viruse if l can't get into it??

What did l do this time and how can l fix it?

Thanks

Alan

More than likely it's not a virus. Most often than not, this is caused by a bad hard drive. I would replace the drive.

I just replaced my P11 450 with a gigabyte mb and a P4 1.8. While initially all looked well, during the boot into Windows 2000 that wonderful blue screen with tons of words, among them, inaccessible boot device.....check your hard drive...blah, blah, blah came up. The only difference between the new configuration and the old is the MB and processor. What stupid thing did I miss? I'm guessing that there may be something in the BIOS that I've misset. Help!!

You will have to reinstall Windows. It does not like you changing the hardware, which includes BIOS and CPU. The reason is Windows create a Hardware Application Layer (HAL) to separate the OS from the hardware when installed.

hi I have been trying to install XP 64 bit on a partition on my laptop and half way through i get a blue screen: 0x0000007B inaccessible boot device and this is quite frustrating because i can install XP 32 bit successfully but not 64bit.

A:XP 64 bit 0x0000007B inaccessible boot device

When you power on your computer, look for a message telling you which key to press to enter your BIOS Setup - usually Delete or F2. Go into setup and change the hard drive setup from SATA to something like Compatible Mode or IDE Mode. The description varies. After you get Windows installed you'll have to update all your chipset drivers then change the hard drive access mode back to SATA.
