Windows 10: Inaccessible boot device after reboot from Update
Check for the boot mode in the BIOS.
Boot mode is Legacy as expected I suppose with MBR.
Hmm,, image wont attach,, anyway the options are Legacy ROM and EFI Compatible ROM,, and its set for Legacy
Besides of clean installing Windows again I cannot think of another possible solution for this.
well... that's not good to hear, considering I started this fresh install on 9/13,, I finally finished it about a week ago, and now this,,,, OH BOY!
Got exactly the same issue after updating on the fast ring last night - only solution was a complete rebuild. Even a ful reset of the PC deleting everything including files did not fix the issue and i ended up having to reinstall completely and reformat drives. I guess the fast ring is a dangerous place to play! i have gone back to the RTM version and will be staying away from insider builds from now on. At least on my main PC.
Sorry to hear that,,, please enlighten me though as some of the terms you used are unfamiliar to me.
RTM Version? Sorry, what version are you referring too?
I was using Windows 7 Ultimate before I did the upgrade to Win 10 Pro, had a snag and went with the fresh install option, which led me to my current status.
In the Windows 10 Insider Preview there are 2 rings, the fast and slow.
Those in the fast are getting frequently updates for the insider preview, the slow ring users slower as it speaks.
The Insiders help improve Windows 10 by sending bugs and suggestions to Microsoft for stabilizing Windows 10 for the next RTM.
The RTM version is the stable version of Windows 10, currently version 10240.
The reason why I cannot find a possible solution is because I never had helped someone who had this problem with MBR instead of GPT. So I don't really know what way I need to go and how to do it.
I will ask the team if someone might know a way out of this.
EDIT: totally forgot about my plan.
Please boot in the troubleshooting options, these options are available when you reboot a few times but are unable to boot normally.
In the troubleshooting options, go to the advanced options, there is the command prompt available.
In the command prompt, enter following commands
You should be able to reboot, but sometimes you need to run an additional extra command
(the "or" part of course not)
bootsect /nt60 SYS or bootsect /nt60 ALL
Try to reboot and see what happens.

Reason: fix boot files part added
Thanks for the feedback, the terms are clearer now. I will try your suggestion when I get stuck in that loop again,, odd thing is, this is the 2nd morning in a row where I have NOT experienced that mystery update that required a restart that ultimately caused that looping BSOD. I was restoring to the exact same image file daily, so no changes have been made unless they occurred without my knowledge? I will do a manual windows update today and see what happens,,, thanks
Update: Did a manual update, it updates 2 of the exact same security updates and a GPU update. Unable to hide either one of them for the future, and the GPU update is not on the list to be able to uninstall? Regardless, I rebooted a couple of time and shut down once and at this moment, I am not experiencing any issues? Leave a sleeping dog lay I say at this moment I suppose,,,
I again sincerely hope it stays this way
Sir, I had upgraded my Acer Aspire Laptop (CORE i5 - 4GB RAM) from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 recently. As it was running very slow, I decided to do a 'clean reset'. By mistake, the recovery partition also cleaned. It then went to a blue screen...
I just opened my Computer Hp Win8.1 and updated to Win10 after a few days it just got updated then it suddenly turn to blue screen with a sad face :(. Then it just go to automatic repair i tried everything but still just keep restarting until i...
Soo... things have gone from bad to worse.
My problem started after windows 10 updated when I shut down my laptop for a quick restart. Windows explorer would crash every second, reopen, then crash again without stopping. I tried a system restore...
I ran into a problem this evening with my laptop, Lenovo B575. The laptop kept restarting because of inaccessible boot_device. I am not sure how to fix this problem. I know it's too new for everyone with Windows 10. Mine is Windows 10 64X Home...
I keep getting the Inaccessible Boot Device error when trying to upgrade from 10061 to 10074. I *think* this may be due to my symlinking the \Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository folder to another partition on the same hard disk....
