    New BSOD I've Never Seen Before


    I multi-boot, main Win 7 and then 2 Win 10's on other drives. It had been at least 10 days since I last booted into them, no problems then, but I was surprised today when I tried.
    Got a smaller than usual BSOD (low res Safe Mode size) and all it said was as follows, even with the smiley:

    :-( Your PC ran into a problem & needs to restart. You can restart
    If you'd like to know more you can search online later for this error: INACCESSIBLE BOOT DEVICE

    What the heck is/was that all about?

    I managed to boot into Safe Mode OK and ran a system file check.....now it boots fine. I guess I will never know!

    An INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE could be caused by corrupted system files, boot sequence errors, drivers, infection, the file system and the hard drive.

    You probably had corrupted system files.

    Thanks, I was trying to figure out what it was looking for in the boot process and just remembered that I had re-lettered by CD-Rom drive (1st boot device in BIOS), which probably got it upset. No problems before or since thankfully.

    In that case it was a boot sequence error
