    Inaccessible Boot Device - tried to lots of things :(


    Hi Guys

    I have a Samsung N130 netbook, its a few years old and was originally supplied with Win7. I upgraded it to Win10 last year. It's been running fine and fully updated as necessary. The only modification I have made is to increase the RAM from 1 to 2 GB.

    A couple of days ago I was downloading and installing the latest version of iTunes, which then called for a restart. This is when I was greated with the BSOD and the stop code "inaccessible Boot Device".

    I can get to the receovery area either by waiting until automatic repairs have failed or by booting from a USB media creation download, which I made yesterday.
    At c prompt I can change the drive to D: and see all my files and so I'm hoping that this means the data is safe.

    This is what I have tried so far:
    1) Restore point (doh! it wasn't turned on)
    2) Auto repair
    3) Re-booting in all the different safe mode options, one by one
    4) Running Scannow, SFC - finds no errors or fixes. Had to force unmount.

    Not sure what else to try. I have data I'd like to recover such as itunes library, photos and word/excel documents. Fortunately the emails are IMAP.

    I did see an approach on another forum which implied installing Linux as a way of getting to my files.

    Any advice would be gratefully received. Thanks for reading my post.

    Max

    I have tried the following so far.

    :)

    I tried doing a clean reinstall of windows and I keep getting a blue screen saying inaccessible boot device. I tried booting with an ISO on a USB and it says the same thing. Can anybody help?

    Hi maxfox44,

    I assume safe mode results in the same problem?

    Have you run chkdsk /r on your partitions?

    Thanks for you reply, yes I tried all different combinations of the safe mode options and also run both SFC and Chksdk. It didn't find any problems.

    To continue I would need more information about your partitions
    Run following command and post back a photo/screenshot of the result
    Code: diskpart list disk sel disk # list partition[/quote] change # to the number of the partition, run the last 2 commands on all disks if you have multiple disks


    An example
