I have a major problem after updating BIOS on my ASUS P9P67 (Rev. 3.1) motherboard to version 3602, as Windows 10 Pro will no longer boot. After the update, my BIOS settings were wiped (as was to be expected) and my Intel software RAID 1 OS volume was reading as individual disks. After fixing a BCD issue, I was able to boot into Windows, however the OD RAID disks were being read as individual disks. So I rebooted, and changed the SATA mode to RAID (from AHCI). After that the RAID volume was read correctly, but Windows would no longer boot. Now I am receiving the following message:
An operating system wasn't found. Try disconnecting any drives that don't contain an operating system.
If I boot to a Windows 10 recovery drive and access the command prompt, I cannot see any Windows installations when running bootrec /scanos. I took a system image of my Windows 7 system before upgrading to Windows 7, and I can see that image from Windows 10 recovery (Troubleshoot -> Advanced Options -> System Image Recovery). However, when I try to use it to recover, I get the following error:
The system image restore failed:
Error details: The processor architecture or OS version of Windows Recovery Environment is not the same as that of the computer that was backed up. For example, a backup of an Vista x64-based computer can be recovered only by using an Vista x64-based version of Windows recovery.
Clearly, this is because I am attempting to use Windows 10 recovery media to recover a Windows 7 image. However, if I boot to my Windows 7 recovery media and attempt to recover the Windows 7 system image, I get the following error:
An internal error occurred. The following information might help you resolve the error:
The system cannot find the file specified. (0x80070002)
I have done some digging on this error code and cannot find anything helpful. Can someone please help me with this? I am totally cool with going back to Windows 7 if it means I can recover my data. I don't understand why I can't run Windows 7 system image recovery, but if I was to install a fresh copy of Windows 7, should I then be able to recover my system image then?
