    Update to 17063 fails - inaccessible boot device

    Having problems updating 17046 to either 17063 and 17074.
    Update seems to work up until it reboots I then get a GSOD inaccessible boot device, it reboots and the same happens (GSOD).
    The System then reverts to my old version (17046).

    Try disabling virtualization in your BIOS if you haven't.

    1) Find a flash drive that you can format ( > or = 8 GB)
    2) Create a bootable windows 10 iso:
    Download Windows 10
    4) Insert the flash drive into any USB port
    5) Open the BIOS and temporarily change boot order so that you can boot using the flash drive.
    6) When the iso loads choose language, time, currency, and keyboard, or click next
    7) In the left lower corner click "repair your computer"
    8) Click troubleshoot
    9) Click command prompt
    This should open: Administrator: X:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe > X:\Sources>

    For all of the steps please use a camera or smart phone camera to take pictures and post images into the thread.

    10) type: bcdedit | find "osdevice"
    11) This may display osdevice partition=C:
    12) type: diskpart
    13) type: list disk
    14) type: list volume
    15) look under the column heading Fs for any volume that displayed RAW instead of NTFS
    16) type: chkdsk /f /r G: (change G to the drive letter of the volume displaying RAW)
    It may display "The first NTFS boot sector is unreadable or corrupt."
    This may then convert the RAW volume to NTFS.
    17) Type: exit
    18) reboot to open the Windows advanced troubleshooting menu > command prompt > Administrator: X:\windows\system32\cmd.exe > X:\Sources>
    19) type: bootrec /rebuildbcd
    It may display:
    Scanning all disks for Windows installations.
    Please wait, since this may take a while...
    Successfully scanned Windows installations.
    Total identified Windows installations: 1
    [1] D:\Windows
    Add installation to boot list? Yes(Y)/No(N)/ALL(A):
    20) Type: Y
    The operation completed successfully.
    21) Type: exit
    22) reboot
    See if the inaccessible boot device problem was fixed.

    If the above did not fix the inaccessible boot device the next step is to remove the recent update:
    23) Open command prompt > Administrator: X:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe > X:\Sources>
    24) From the first command displaying the partition if the drive letter is different than C: please use the displayed drive letter for the next step
    25) type: DISM /image:G:\ /cleanup-image /revertpendingactions (change G to the applicable drive letter)
    26) This should remove the latest update and fix the inaccessible boot device.
    27) If this does not fix the inaccessible boot device plan a registry repair.

    Report into the thread your progress with images of the above steps.

    There's an ongoing discussion on this topic on the Insider MVP forums, particularly in connection with ASUS devices. MS is aware of this and is looking for a fix (with ASUS involved where that plays in). No fixes as yet, so the word on the street is to stick with the previous release and wait for future relief.

    Asus X99 -- 17074.1002 still gives me GSOD inaccessible boot device. Have tried disabling other drives, virtualization, VT-D, etc, installing from ISO, etc in 17063 and 17074.1001.
