Windows 10
I got a BSOD recently on a Windows 10 PC. I forced my computer to shut down by holding the power button. However, it keeps booting up now to 'Inaccessible Boot device' error. Not the login screen. Is there a way to fix this? I don't want to lose my files.

    Probably BSOD means, this indicates, somehow crash/corrupted system files/hardware incompatibility was there. In this situation, try to boot the system in safe mode and see if you get success. If not boot the system with setup/repair CD/DVD and reinstall the same, but don't format the OS.

    Sounds like there may be an issues with your drive. If you have the CD with the OS you can try booting from that. Some manufacturers will create a partition on the drive with the OS for recovery. What brand of computer are you using?

    Forgot to mention. If there is another partition with the backup OS you would have to go into the BIOS and change the boot drive letter and that may help get your system back up and running.

    One more thing you can try, restart the system in safe mode with networking and if it runs without any issue, you can update/uninstall certain drivers from windows update or from device manager. If there is yellow symbol shows in device manager, you can uninstall the same and try tor reboot it again in normal mode.

    In safe mode, you can take all necessary backups and then do these things.

    If that does not work, reboot the OS, and enter BIOS. Open advanced section and change setting like ahci mode to enabled/auto. Now save and exit to restart.

    I am seeing this issue in Win 8 due to bad patches issued by Microsoft. The failed patches lock your system because they did something to the boot sector and will not allow the system to boot, and returns a BSOD with an error that your system needs to be repaired. The repair does not work due to the drive being locked. Microsoft's solution is reformat and reinstall the O/S losing everything on the drive. This is not an option. I am still working on the issue.

    @bhannah: I feel for your problem. Microsoft has really put some messed up patches out over the years. I think that is why some users disable the auto updates. The down side is that is how things like WannaCry propagate. I guess we are damned if we do and damned if we don't. Just no winning with Microsoft. Hopefully you can recover most if not all your data from a backup.

    If the all tricks don't work, if possible, detach the HDD and insert into a running system (Windows/Linux) and take all necessary backups first (as you mentioned don't want to lose data). Then again attach the HDD to this problematic system and try to reinstall the OS again. if you are not so comfortable, you can take help from a hardware expert.
