Windows 10: Windows 10 Cannot Boot after Update (Error code: 0xc000000f)

    Windows 10 Cannot Boot after Update (Error code: 0xc000000f)


    My Windows 10 machine updated itself today (taking a really long time).
    When it was finished I rebooted it and I'm getting:

    Your PC/device needs to be repaired
    A required device isn't connected or can't be accessed.
    Error code: 0xc000000f

    I tried booting from a USB and using bootrec but it doesn't seem to work but then again I may be using it wrong.

    The HD is less than 1 year old.

    Please advise!

    When I boot from a USB stick and choose repair + console, I can see my drive.

    bootrec /rebuildbcd find my drive but gives me: "The requested system device cannot be found."

    Hi adish,

    The repair process should have created a file srtTrails.txt in Windows\System32\Logfiles\srt, could you copy this file to your USB and upload it via a different device.

    Hi axe0,

    Thanks for your reply.
    I ended up buying Neosmart Easy Recovery Essentials, which fixed the problem with it's "Automatic Repair".
    A web search revealed that many people have reported similar problems after the latest Windows update.

    I hope the problem will not return.
