What causes "inaccessible boot device" stop error 0x0000007B?

An inaccessible boot device stop error can be caused by any of the following:

  • A boot sector virus
  • Corrupt Windows registry
  • Moving a boot drive from one computer to another
  • Bad or partially connected data cables
  • Bad sectors on the hard drive
  • Upgrading your computer
  • Power surge or outage

The most commonly recommended solution to this inaccessible boot device error is to format the hard drive and run a fresh reinstall of the operating system.

There is a problem with this recommendation:
You will lose your data! You should only reinstall or format the hard drive if you are absolutely sure you do not need any of the files from it (you can only be sure after you check your backups).

At ADR Data Recovery, we receive hundreds of calls from customers and technicians alike who thought they had backed up or saved their data from a hard drive only to realize that after formatting, there were files that hadn't been saved or weren't included in the backup session.

In most cases we can recover data after a hard drive has been formatted or after a fresh install of the operating system has been performed. However, there is always a risk that all of your data may not be recoverable, especially if the drive has been used after the format/reinstall.

Technical Support Told Me To!
Nearly every day clients call in a panic because a technical support technician told them to run their recovery disk. This is not a solution if you don't want to lose your data! Yes, ADR can usually recover data at this point but email and other files may be corrupt and it's tough to get a 100% recovery.
