Hi,

 

  My Windows 10 machine updated itself today (taking a really long time).

When it was finished I rebooted it and I'm getting:

 

 

Recovery
Your PC/device needs to be repaired
A required device isn't connected or can't be accessed.
Error code: 0xc000000f
 
I tried booting from a USB and using bootrec but it doesn't seem to work (I may be using it wrong).
 
The HD is less than 1 year old.
 
Please advise!
Thanks,
Adi

Hi _Adi,

 

Sorry for the delay in response, this section of the BC forum has been a little overwhelmed.

 

Do you still need help?


Kind regards,
Axe0

Hi axe0,

Thanks for your reply. 
I ended up buying Neosmart Easy Recovery Essentials, which fixed the problem with it's "Automatic Repair".
A web search revealed that many people have reported similar problems after the latest Windows update.

I hope the problem will not return.
Thanks for getting back to me!

Thanks for letting me know what you did to fix your problem :)

 

FYI, the error code you received means a file necessary in the boot process was not there. Considering the usual causes for this error, it's very likely that Neosmart made a copy of the file from an ISO, I assume, and moved it to the right place.


Kind regards,
Axe0

I did spend several hours trying to fix this via various solutions online - none worked.

 

NeoSmart didn't ask for anything like an ISO, it just did its thing and it worked.

I hope this helps others - I've seen similar complaints online.

Well worth the $20.

Neosmart likely has all the files of an ISO within the software, similar to how Windows has an online store for repairing corrupt files.
Kind regards,
