Every time I boot up my PC, I see this message after the BIOS splash screen:
boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible 0x000000f
From then, only Windows 10 will only boot when a recovery or installation image is available from USB or Optical drive.
Tried the following without solving the issue:
In Windows RE (Recovery Environment)
/fixmbr- Fix Master Boot Record (
/fixboot- Fix Boot (
/rebuildbcd-Rebuild Boot Configuration Data (
requested system device cannot be found)
- Chkdsk (no errors)
In Windows 10
- Automatic Repair
- Reinstallation of Windows 10 while saving profile and apps
When scanning for OS
/scanos, I see 2x Windows Installations on the D: Drive:
Windows and Windows.old
However when booted in Windows 10, the Windows system files are located on C: drive, not D.
How do I reconcile the two label differences?
- Is that why the BIOS cannot see the C drive because it thinks it is D?
Is there anything I can do, short of a clean install?
