    UPDATE
    My PC was just thrown into "Inaccessible Boot Device" again and this time I tried using Windows Startup Repair (expecting it to fail). It actually brought my PC back and cleared the inaccessible boot device problem.

    I am still unsure whether or not this is a permanent solution but let's just continue trying to solve it anyways to be sure its fixed.

    KB4056892 is the offending update, struggled with this since DEC!!!!!!
    It somehow manages to wipe the reg key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE_SOFTWARE_MICROSOFT_WINDOWS CURRENT VERSION
    which is where windows is told about the boot drive and program files.
    Solution:
    Boot from recovery drive
    restore system image (system restore did not try it)
    Kill windows update (disable) in services
    Open regedit and navigate to above key. confirm all string values ProgramFilesDir etc are shown.
    Open update and security and remove all WIN 10 (not office etc) updates after KB4056892.
    Close and re-open regedit and re-check key for string values.
    If present re-boot and all should be good. Restoring the registry will not solve the problem
    Another way to check if this is the issue is to use the Media Creation tool after it downloads your only option will be full install as
    "Windows is installed in an unsupported directory" in other words Windows Registry checker can't find the correct path
    because the key has been deleted
    Hope this helps someone, took me weeks to figure out what was happening
