Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition
My computer crashed and keeps giving me the same window and message: A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. I don't have the Windows Installation Disc. It also shows: Status: 0xc000000f Info: the boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible. help! What do I do? It spins me in circles...
You're getting that error message because the boot files on your hard drive (the required inaccessible device) are corrupted.
When first booting, press F8 repeatedly. Will the computer let you go into safe mode? If not, without the installation cd, you're kinda between a rock and a hard place. However, you can download a (free) vista recovery disk (repair only) from the people at easyBCD:
Just follow the directions to do a start up repair.
If that works, by all means, make yourself a recovery cd before doing anything else.
