Hopefully you can help me or at least lead me to some diagnostic steps when I get home to try and fix this machine. I don't know the specs, I finally had it up and running yesterday and it was great, no problems. Normally I don't buy machines, another tech guy at my work and for a dualcore i7 with the components on it, is a wicked good price at 400.00 dollars.
I am trying to think of some of the specs, has 8gb of memory, holds up to 16, the board has two sli graphic cards, however I am only using one card. In the near future I will add two sli cards, main reason is I need more outputs for the displays.
This is where and when I received this message.
0xc000000f -- The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible.
Windows 7 Ultimate 64Bit
I do not have the disc, I may have one before I leave and go home, not sure if that will fix the problem or not. Never have used system restore, I believe this is the reason why it wants the Windows 7 CD
I decided I was going to keep it and buy it so I was going to deploy it in replace of my current machine and on the back it only had 2 DVI w/ 1 HDMI
I run 4 LCD displays, and like I said above, I don't have another SLI card, but I installed it the standard way when adding multiple GPU's, the first one was already installed, so I put in a PCI dual 1>DVI 1>VGA w/ svideo output
I also put in a soundcard to connect to my receiver.
Tested the machine before moving it, and received this error, I have not yet made it through POST, no Windows splash screen.
>> I then removed the PCI GPU and thet PCI Soundcard
Same error -- 0xc000000f -- The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible.
BTW, the HDD setup is
2 1TB sata 0 Raid, 1 1TB sata drive
I removed then the bios battery and removed all the RAM, nothing changed
I was able to click my other option which was TAB, and ran a Memory test, but didn't find anything and restarted with the same error showing.
