    INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE Bluray Drive


    First, let me say that Windows 8 is fine and working. No problems. Now, I had this BluRay drive from long ago and I wanted to put it in my PC. When I first installed Windows 8 on my pc, it was working fine. The DVD drive and Bluray booted just fine. I removed the Bluray drive later to use in another PC. Now I want to bring it back to my Win8 PC and it gives me the INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE error. What happened?

    Check the cables (both data and power) - try switching cables in case they're damaged.
    Run Startup Repair: Automatic Repair - Run in Windows 8

    The power is fine. It lights up and the drive spins and lights up.

    I tried another SATA data cord. It produces same results
    When I tried this SATA data cord, it doesn't even boot into windows. I'll try another cable tomorrow when I get it

    Did the other cable help?

    What happened when you attempted to run Startup Repair?

    Another cable shows the same results. Startup repair goes into infinite boot

    Run Hard Drive diagnostic: Hard Drive Diagnostic Procedure
    If it passes, then slave drive to another computer to recovery your data - Then reinstall Windows
    If it doesn't pass, then you'll need a new hard drive.
