Windows 7 will not boot; Status 0x000000e; Info: The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible.

Hi,
While in Internet Explorer 8, my pc showed a strange popup with a red volume control set at 100%.  Could not remove it.  Forced a shutdown, now Windows 7 will not boot.  

Get the following error mesage:
"Status 0x000000e; Info: The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible."
Please advise.

Thanks,
Joe

MAke sure your  boot device priority is set correctly and all HDD's are visible in the bios before running the above.

Hi,
Finally got to the Command Prompt and tried to type "Bootrec.exe" command.  It won't take /FixMbr.
I see x:\Sources>
So it does not accept the /FixMbr command.  Please advise.

Thanks,
Joe

Hi,

PROBLEM FIXED!  When the Windows DVD repair was done I removed the DVD [seemed logital].  When I left the DVD in after the repair Windows 7 came up and is fine.

Thanks,
