  1. Error code 0x000000e after booting from cloned M.2


    Hi I just cloned my M.2 to a bigger one and when I booted the new one the Recovery bluescreen appeared with the error code: 0x000000e. It also says a required device isnt connected or cant be accessed.

    Is there any workaround for that? Is there anything I shouldve done other than cloning my Laptop? Bc that worked pretty much seamlessly.

    M.2 SATA to NVME clone: Windows 10 won't boot

    Problem: Windows partition won't boot after cloning M.2 SATA drive to M.2 NVME. Simply returns to BIOS splash screen are restarts boot sequence.

    Background: Cloning process was simple raw dd copy. Drive had EFI, Windows 10, and Linux partitions. Cloning preserved exact partition sequence, sizes, and UUIDs.

    Linux partition needed minor tweaks to /etc/fstab due to the device names being different (/dev/nvme0n1px vs. /dev/sdax), but boots fine.

    The disk is GPT, and I believe the original Windows 10 was UEFI - the Linux installation definitely was.

    Boot sequence brings up Linux 'grub' menu first. Choosing the EFI partition then brings up Windows EFI boot menu. Fresh Windows install (see below) boots fine from here, old install fails.

    Attempts at solution: I did a fresh Windows install in a spare partition and it boots fine. Using the new Windows installation, I've edited the BCD entry for my original Win 10 install. I have
    the correct BCD device, osdevice, and path.

    Questions:

    • What else needs to be done to make Windows boot again?
    • Are there any config file or registry changes that need to be made to account for the SATA to NVME move?
    • How do I see boot error messages for a UEFI boot failure? No errors displayed and no log files that I can find in Windows or EFI partitions...

  3. "A required device isn't connected or can't be accessed" Error 0x000000e on Windows 10

    I wanted to install an SSD in a Laptop with 2 HDDs, one of which is not used. I took out the HDD which was not used, replacing it with the SSD and leaving the HDD with the
    current Windows 10 Operating system. I then installed Windows 10 from media creation on the new SSD. But I receive the error : "A required device isn't connected or can't be accessed" - "Error 0x000000e", when I select the new
    Windows installation from the Boot Manager.

    Steps followed:

    1. Replace HDD with new SSD. (Still with 1 OS HDD installed)
    2. Create Windows 10 installation media with the Media Creation tool from Microsoft.
    3. Boot from Windows 10 installation media.
    4. Install Windows 10 on the new SSD. (no volume exists)
    5. Installation Completes.
    6. Re-boot.
    7. Windows Boot Manager shows the 2 Windows 10 Installations.
    8. Select the new installation.
    9. Receive the error : "A required device isn't connected or can't be accessed" - "Error 0x000000e"

    After some research I have found the following two options:

    Option 1: This seems like a simple solution, but will I be able to boot from both Operation Systems (OS) after this?

    1. Reformat the Partition created on the SSD for Windows 10
    2. Remove the old HDD from the Laptop
    3. Reinstall Windows 10 from the installation media

    Option 2: This is the most common suggestion but the information around this fix is fairly limited, I don't understand why this simple installation would cause issues here? I did run bootrec /scanos and no OS was listed.

    1. bootrec /fixmbr
    2. bootrec /fixboot
    3. bootrec /scanos <--- If no OS is found run the following
      1. bcdedit /export C:\bcdbackup
      2. C:
      3. cd boot
      4. attrib bcd -s -h –r
      5. ren C:\boot\bcd bcd.old
    4. bootrec /rebuildbcd
    Option 2 found from sources such as, Fix the MBR – Guide for Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, 10 / FIX: A required device isn't connected or can't be accessed 0x000000E on Windows 10/8/8.1 - wintips.org - Windows Tips & How-tos

    Hi Max,

    The error code 0x000000e may occur due to the following issues:

    • Program lock-ups.
    • Slow PC performance.
    • System freezes.
    • Startup and shut down issue.
    • Installation and hardware failure.

    To resolve the boot error code 0x000000e, we suggest that you follow the Startup Repair steps below:

      twice.
    • Turn on your computer for the third time, and let it load.
    • It should give you the message: Preparing Automatic Repair.
    • On the next screen that would appear, click on Advanced Options.
    • Select Troubleshoot.
    • Go to Advanced Options.
    • Click on Startup Repair.
    • Wait for the repair to finish.
