    BSOD because of HFS+ (INACCESSABLE_BOOT_DEVICE)


    I forgot to uninstall the Paragon HFS drivers... now can't access my computer. So I reverted to 10586, but it still pops up. How do I fix this?

    Sure, my HDD is still accessable through cmd, but I can't access Windows. After automatic reboot, I can't even access recovery options! "Your PC couldn't start properly" and error code 0xc0000001. So I broke my Windows due to HFS drivers. Need help ASAP, important data inside the HDD. Which drivers do I need to install?

    EDIT: look at my system specs so that you know what drivers to install.

    EDIT 2: Oh wait! I almost forgot to tell you that my Windows 10 1607 installation USB does not detect my hard drive on setup.

    EDIT 3: I am itching a Reset to restore functionality, but I want to keep my apps and data, along with my settings. Normally I can do a repair install but I can't reach the desktop.

    EDIT 4: So here's the full story. I was restarting to install an update for 1607, but I wasn't looking in Settings to uninstall the HFS+ drivers. Restarted and this started happening.

    Hi TTSVids105,

    Welcome to the 10forums

    This paragon driver should be active only in normal mode, can you boot into safe mode?
    After 3 unsuccesful boot attempts your system should go into the recovery options, from there you could try to go into safe mode.

    I can't access safe mode at all. Every boot option has the same error (inaccessable boot device). However I CAN access a GUI through Ubuntu. How do I completely uninstall drivers through cmd?

    Oh, and one query: How do you do a clean boot through cmd without accessing any GUI?

    EDIT: I almost forgot to mention that the driver is loaded in safe mode. Maybe one can try a seperate VM on 1607, install Paragon HFS+ version 10.5 and only 10.5, restart and ta-da! BSOD.

    I can't even use BlueScreenView or WhoCrashed because I can't access any GUI at all. I can't even launch msconfig. Taskmgr closes on startup.

    And when I start from my W10 10586 USB, there's no disk drives detected. Reset

    So this is the last time I'm touching Paragon at all.

    Oh, and when I am writing this, I'm resetting my PC while keeping my files. Will update when something happens.

    Yup just wasted a couple of hours reinstalling Win 10 thanks to this buggy driver!
    Also thought it was my SSD causing problem but 2nd time I installed Win 10 noticed got inacessible device error right after installing this Seagate 9.1 hfs+ driver, which they claim is compatible with Win 10, lies!

    Confirmed by installing it on 2nd Win 10 machine and got same error. Luckily I made a restore point before installing this software 2nd time so was able to just revert to restore point right before and everything went back to working! But yeah if I had 4TB of free space to copy all the stuff on the mac drive I got hooked up to my PC I would've already reformated NTFS because I complained about their software not being compatible like over a year ago and they kept claiming it worked fine. Sure then why they got this warning hidden in the fineprint on their website for this software even the latest version 10. "Due to specifics of Windows 10 and Windows 8 Fast Startup option we recommend to disable it before installing the driver to avoid possible filesystem corruption. Instructions on disabling can be found in Microsoft Knowledge Base."

    This link guy says you need HFS+ 10.5 version to work with Win 10.

    I'm now using HFSExplorer to manage HFS drives instead of Paragon's buggy drivers that doesn't work with every major update. Even though the intergration with File Explorer with the drivers is useful, it just crashes a lot!

    So I'm not trusting HFS+ drivers that crash my computer. This had happened before, but I had created a restore point and used it.

    For my case, this BSOD is solved using a reset! It took so long (and I had to go to my windows.old folder to move everything back as well). I then installed the Anniversary Update and I'm all good!
