    BSOD Inaccessible Boot Device after uninstalling Intel RST

    I'm using Windows 8 Professional 64bit installed on my Plextor M5P SSD

    Last week, I updated my Intel RST driver from 11.2 to 12.0

    After updating and restarting my computer, I found the RST service can't start properly.

    So I uninstal the RST 12.0 and will instal old 11.2 after restarting computer.

    When restarting, In the blue window loading screen, it loaded long time than before then suddenly into BOSD

    Installing disk to use repair windows in vain, to use refresh but it said my disk locked need to be unlocked?

    I figured that my disk is locked and can't get into Windows

    How to unlock the disk?

    I put the boot disk to other pc, can read and write without any problem!

    Please help me!

    Thanks in advance!

    The disk appears to be fine, it's the boot files that are causing your problem.
