  • Hi,

     

    The issue may be caused by incorrect SATA mode settings. You can try to go to BIOS setting and change the boot drive setting.

     

    For more information:

     

    Error message when you start a Windows Vista-based computer after you change the SATA mode of the boot drive: "STOP 0x0000007B INACCESSABLE_BOOT_DEVICE"

    Hope it helps.
