    Inaccessible Boot Device


    I fired up my PC yesterday morning and was welcomed by the dreaded BSOD. It told me that it had run into a problem caused by an inaccessible boot device. There are numerous help sites on the web that explain how to deal with this issue. I tried every one of them bar one and none of them got me up and running again. The only one I haven't tried is the hard reset option. Although I have backups of most of my files, I didn't want to lose what's on my hard drive unless it's absolutely necessary. Reinstalling all the applications is going to be a big enough PITA. I'd be interested to learn whether anyone else hit the same brick wall and wound up wiping their hard drive because nothing else worked.
    Having spent most of yesterday trying to resolve this problem and getting nowhere, I am wrestling with the idea of ditching Windows altogether and switching to a Mac. Anyone want to give me an argument?
    BTW I typed "Inaccessible Boot Device" into the search box on the BSOD forum and got zero results. Really?

    This is a Microsoft link on inaccessible boot device:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/win...le-boot-device

    It is an intermediate level link.
    There are more advanced steps that can be ran once the partition structure is known.
    There are steps for repair of the boot sector, operating system, etc.
    Sometimes this bugcheck can be caused by windows updates.

    A reset save files equivalent may be able to be performed.
    Alternatively a clean install can be performed once important files are backed up.

    I'm not sure if this is helpful, but maybe you can have a try. Windows operating system backups a working registry for recovery purpose. You can perform registry backup restoring to fix the inaccessible boot device error. The pre-condition is that you can access to the Advanced startup opotions of your PC. You'll need to use the command prompt.
    Also, steps are a little bit complicated. However, if you follow the guide strictly, no mistake should be made. You can Google how to restore from Registry Backup, or refer to this article for help. Inaccessible Boot Device Lenovo.
