Hello, 

 

The latest Windows update (May 16 or 17th) has caused an error when booting my PC. Everything was working perfectly fine until I ran the update and PC auto restarted. Upon restart I received a message pertaining to a BCD error. Upon walking away from my PC from frustration and booting a few hours later, the BCD error was gone and now receive the following error message : 

 

"Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press key "

 

I have three SSD in my PC with only one having the windows install in it. No SSD's will boot and all receive the same error message upn trying to boot into them. 

 

Any guidance on how to get my PC back up and running would be greatly appreciated. 

 

Thank you  :yes:

If you have access to another PC and a USB drive of 8G or bigger you can go to 

https://www.microsof...load/windows10

Scroll down to where you can see Download Now and click on it.  

 

Instructions are below the Download Now button.  Click on the + in front of

Using the tool to create installation media (USB flash drive, DVD, or ISO file) to install Windows 10 on a different PC (click to show more or less information).

 

Once you create the bootable USB you can then go into the BIOS on your sick PC and tell it to boot from your USB.  It should give you a Repair option or you can just install a fresh copy of Windows.  (Expect a few hour of updating Windows once it's done.  Also you may need to resize the RE partition

Sometimes the USB will use MBR and some newer PCs will not read MBR devices unless you go into the BIOS and allow Legacy boot media.

The link is good if you click on it but the forum software likes to shorten what it shows you for some reason so trying to type it in fails.

Thanks for the assistance thus far. I completed a successful re-install of Windows 10. Downloaded the first set of updates and then on re-boot the BIOS freezes up when trying to detect a hard drive ('Auto-Detecting SATA 6 . . .') Not sure where to go from here ...

Suspect you may have a dying hard drive.

 

If you can reload Window, before getting any updates:

 

Run CrystalDiskInfo:

 
 
Scroll down a bit and you will see a 
button that says Installer (Vista+).  That's the button you need to use to download the installer.  
Save the file then go to the download folder and right click on the file and run as admin.  
The program will install and then start up.   Once it reads the drives you just hit File then Save Text.  
Save the file to your desktop and then attach it or open it then copy and paste the text to a reply.
