Windows 10 Broke My Computer RRS feed

  • Question

  • I finally decided to upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10, however during installation the screen went black forever so the installation clearly failed.

    I tried to switch off and on again but now I am getting an error 0xc00000f "The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible".

    It suggests to insert my Windows installation disc but I don't have one.

    Does this mean I need to buy a new PC?

    Thanks

    Once you've booted to the DVD, then try the following:

    3.       Select a language, a time, a currency, a keyboard or an input method, and then click Next.

    4.       Click Repair your computer.
