First off, this may be a sign the drive is failing (Not 100% though).

Second you will need your windows cd to try to fix the issue.
You will need to boot into recovery console, and at the prompt use
fixboot and fixmbr, try to restart and see if the computer start up correctly.

Usually if the message "a required device is inaccessible" then there is a problem with the hard disk, maybe if the HDD can be test with manufacturers test software, otherwise you have a faulty HDD and it needs to be replaced.

How do you run CHKDSK /F with the blue screen stop error on my desktop?


You MUST have a boot device like CD, DVD, or USB. Use the install disc to access command prompt, by choosing the repair option. You could also download and burn a boot CD like Hirens.

The other option is to remove the drive and attach it as a slave or USB to another computer.

When i am trying to instaling win xp .getting a error message like stop 0x00000007B in a blue screen


hello Shameeralipk,

The most popular Blue Screen of Death error in Windows is the STOP 0x0000007B error, sometimes called the 0x7b error or the "INACCESSIBLE BOOT DEVICE" BSOD.

This BSOD (which is actually the common name for a STOP Error) could mean that there's a serious hardware problem with a hard drive controller, a driver issue, or even a boot sector virus.

thansk.

The blue screen of death is a serious problem. One ofthe causes could be overheating or could be because the graphics card isdamaged and doesn't work anymore. Try to use Registry cleaner and be freeof blue screen errors

Already press f8 and f11 and other f's still it shows WINDOWS BOOT MANAGER, and it says Info: The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible.


You need to press F11 or F8 before you get to the boot manager. This will allow you to choose a different boot device.

From your request, the question is very general.

Code Stop 0x0000007B, it means "inaccessible boot device": Windows is not able to read from the device it's supposed to be booting from. That device would normally be your hard drive - but if you're getting this during Windows installation, it could be something wrong with your CD or DVD drive..

The Stop 0x0000007B error message will be displayed on your screen with a lot of other information in what is know as the "Blue Screen Of Death" or "BSOD".

Different PCs have different "IDE or Sata interface default settings" depending on the OEM manufacturer specifications. Check your OEM motherboard require any BIOS updating.

If your PC is a desktop, remove all the PCI devices installed on the PCI slots.

If you can access to the CMOS BIOS, reset the settings to default, save the settings and reboot your computer.

If the your PC can access to windows, do a "chkdsk /f/r" from the "Command Prompt".

If not you have to reinstall the OS.

IBM T20,inaccessible boot device


The Innaccessable Boot Device message means one of 2 things:

1: your hard drive has died - not much here, must replace drive.

2: The master boot record has become corrupt. Without any media, this will be hard to fix. You will need to boot to the Windows CD and either run the recovery console or perform a windows repair to fix this issue.

Windows failed to start.


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.
