I was in the middle of backing up my failing hard drive to a brand spankin' new internal drive when my computer completely froze on me. I restarted and received this error:
0xc000000f: The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible
I've already gone into the bios and made sure it was booting on the right drive, and it was. I've switched to every possible boot device and they all give me the same error message. I've also ran the windows installation disc and performed a startup repair multiple times to no avail. I've even checked for loose cables but everything seems fine, and even if my old hard drive has finally failed, it still won't boot on the new one either.
I've also ran 'bcdedit' in the command prompt and it showed that it was booting on the correct drive. so I'm really just at a loss here.
I've been having non-stop computer problems for about 2 weeks and I really just want it to stop. (not to mention now I'm really concerned I've lost all my files for good)
Anyone have any suggestions?
