Subject: Inaccessible Boot Device error
Date Posted: 16 Jun 2019 at 1:57pm
I bought the GMA3800BST from my local Best Buy on Friday. Earlier today I had a windows update come up and decided to shut it the PC down for the update. Upon turning it back on the update failed and are still currently pending. When trying to boot windows I am getting an Inaccessible Boot Device error on a blue screen of death. It won’t let me manually uninstall the updates because they are still pending. I have tried using DISM in the command prompt in the trouble shooter?

How can I fix this problem? Thanks in advance

An update on my current situation.

I have followed along with this persons solution since I am almost certain I am getting the inaccessible Boot device blue screen of death because of a windows update. https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/898393-windows-10-inaccessible_boot_device-bsod/

I got as far as get-packages. However when I tried remove-package and then add-packages after downloading the update from the catalog they both resulted in dism error 87. I am not sure where to go from here since I am still stuck in the “recovering you of loop”

Any ideas on what I can do?

All help is appreciated. I wanted to update on the current status

Because the updates are still “pending” it isn’t allowing me to roll back to a previous version. When I tried windows restore I got error code: 0x80070020

I tied using boot rev commands as suggested here https://wintechlab.com/inaccessible-boot-device-windows-10/?amp

Upon using scanos it said no os was found. I am currently clearing off a flash drive to create a new install from the Microsoft media creation tool.

I plan on calling cyberpowerpc support when they open. Though I won’t proceed with that until I call. The one question I have regarding that process is if by installing the windows 10 created on my laptop will result it windows 10 be deactivated/uninstalled from there when attempting to put it on the desktop.

This is the first time I have ever come across this issue and have desperately been trying to resolve it.

Thank you for the help and hopefully that helps clarify what I have been trying.

Hey I just wanted to add this here: I have this same PC and it is doing the same thing it sounds like. My PC randomly crashed and then ever since it has been constantly crashing giving the error of inaccessible boot device. It seems it forgot that windows was on there? Let me know if you figure anything out! I’ll let you know if I do as well.

I would recommend calling support. I ended up needing to reinstall windows. They provide a good tutorial on how to do so. I am 99.99% that AMD StoreMI is the culprit for this issue. I didn’t reinstall it and have pushed back my windows updates as far as it would let me (July 21st) to avoid the issue reappearing in the immediate.

Dang, really? They told you there is no way around this other than “nuking” the computer and starting over? I’m pretty dissappointed if so... I would prefer to NOT lose my files.....

Yeah, I tried The other solutions given to avail, when I called I was told most likely some system files got corrupted and that it would require a new windows 10 install and nuking it to fix it. I didn’t want to lose my files but it was the only way.
