"The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible"
I am not able to change change settings in bios because admin password is set and I do not
have the password. I did set the HDD password and know that. I am able to access F8 but the
Repair My Computer option is not working. F10 is available as well and reads:
Edit boot optios for: Windows 7 Path: \Windows system32\winload.exe Partion: 1 Hard Disk: d7a5bd9d [ /NOEXECUTE=OPTIN ]
I have access to F2 and F12 but cannot change settings because I do not have the BIOS password. I have access to F10 which reads what I have included above and am able to change [NO EXECUTE=OPTIN] and then the system boots to where it says
Starting Windows and then windows colors for windows logo begin to form and stops boot and restarts process all over again. Boot options available to me are "Hard Drive" USB Storage Device, CD/DVD/CD-RW Device, Network, Diagnostics, and Enter Setup. I have run setup and all test come back as passing.
I have 2 computers that are in this current state. A Dell M5010 (A15) as well as a Sony Vaio model PCG-71312L. I do not have recovery discs for either, nor a Windows 7 CD. I do have a recovery option for windows on a SD card, but neither is recognizing it. Is there a way to transfer recovery from a working computer to either of these units?
