    Error 0xc000014c Cannot boot from any media nor access bios


    Hi,

    Windows 10 / Z68 / i2500K (not overclocked)

    I had a faulty audio amp blow the fuses on the house when plugging in. My desktop went to blue screen with the message:

    Your PC/Device needs to be repaired
    The Boot Configuration Data for your PC is missing or contains errors
    File:/Boot/BCD
    Error code: 0x000014c
    You'll need to use recovery tools. If you don't...

    I created a recovery tool USB from another PC. Booted from the USB, went into recovery and it fixed the PC without issue.

    A week later and the PC just froze. Had to reboot - straight back to the above screen. Tried the same process and the operating system on the USB would not load. Tried different USB ports, tried a DVD - nothing. Reset the Bios - nothing. Loaded a new complete Windows 10 onto USB to try a clean install. Will not load. I can no no longer even access the Bios to change the boot sequence. So no bios access, recovery not working, clean install not happening.

    Need this urgently for work (data is backed up externally plus on separate hard drives in the PC regardless so no issue with data loss). Would this most likely be a hard drive or MOBO issue? Picking a replacement C drive may be the best option. Current drive is a Samsung EVO SSD.

    Thanks.

    Apologies. The screen was blue. The PC appears dead. Not up with the nuances of what constitutes a BSOD.
    Will post it elsewhere. If mods could close. this thread.
