    BSOD,code OXC000021a

    Following a restore operation BSOD with code OXC000021a. Then black screen, all function keys inoperable Can't get to any Bios settings or recovery methods.Have switched all video elements- no change.

    Thinking about cloning a new hard drive using a working windows 10 machine to eliminate the original hard drive and also bypassing the function a way to achieve a boot. Comments? Ideas?

    If you have a DVD drive I would suggest you try to boot from a recovery or repair disk that you can create on another PC.
