I can't get it to boot in advanced startup. I have my back up discs would that help?
Its saying the boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible status: 0xc000000f
Ok so how can I get my drive back all it's doing is restarting over and over I have to change my bios to get it to boot from disc or USB but I don't know where to go from there
Not sure of recurrence of going back to Windows 7 from recovery disc then trying to upgrade again to Windows 10 at this point. We are also not positive what the issues are yet.
When you were able to get into the BIOS what boot order did you first see, the main C: drive, not the boot manager,. Unless something was selected wrong when you boot from the flash drive, not sure of all questions to ask need to see more from you.
That true error is something that is corrupt and missing, most cases fixed with repair disc as first mentioned.
Yes that's what I am seeing pretty much just not the blue screen.
Enter the BIOS and know how to navigate, look for any thing stating fast boot, secure boot, disable those.
Ok sorry been away from my PC family emergency! It says I don't have required device or partitions set or something. Like that! I can get get it to boot from USB I made if I click install then click custom install it takes me to page that says where do you want to install windows ? Is this where I need to be?
If so not sure amount of partitions on the drive what it shows when you get to this screen. Is there only one hard drive or 2 ? Did you backup all important files to another device first ? Did you say you have Windows 7 recovery discs or i wonder if hard drive has a recovery partition for Windows 7 ? Want to make sure of some of this before proceeding.
