Hello,
I just experienced a BSOD related to KERNEL SECURITY CHECK and now I cant no longer enter Windows 10. Im panicking because it seems like theres no way to solve it: when I turn my PC on it is stuck on the AsRock initial screenshot and F11 doesnt even work...
Is there anything I can do?
It is the very first time something like this happens to me. 🥺🥺

Try to do a power drain on the system and then try to boot into the bios and see if your HDD is visible in the pheripheral section. Load the defaults and try to boot into safe mode of the system.

Thank you Nemesis-Dinu.
Yesterday, after a couple of hours, everything came back to normal automatically. I turned on the PC and run WhoCrashed to find out that BSOD was due to ntoskrnl.exe.
Today, however, my PC suddenly "freezed" to the point I had to manually turn it off. And since then, again, I can no longer enter Windows 10 and my PC is stuck on the AsRock opening screenshot. I tried a power drain, but it didn't work, unfortunately. :(
I am worried: I installed Windows 10 months ago but with Windows 7 (my previous Os) something like this never occurred.

Is the HDD identified in the BIOS, a Seagate HDD for example will be listed something like ST1000DM004 and a Western Digital along the lines of WD10JPLX other brands will have similar identification codes, only when such an ID code is present is a HDD actually detected and an entry simply listed as SATA HDD means that the BIOS will and has looked for a HDD in that particular boot sequence but no HDD was detected.
