    inaccessible boot device. winload.exe error on booting up


    Hi there
    EVERY TIME I boot my system I get an bluescreen error message saying operating system couldn't be load because a required file is missing or contains errors. Error code was 0x000000e and File: \Windows\system32\winload.exe.

    I am caching the system with intel rapid storage tech 11.7.0.1013 with a OCZ agility 3 64GB ssd and a WD Black 2TB hdd. My mobo is a asus sabertooth z77. Windows 8 x64 Enterprise

    My work around that i have found that works every time is to hit delete and go into bios, then as soon as im in bios choose to discard changes and restart.

    As soon as I have done that windows starts instantly

    Any ideas?? Having to do my workaround annoys me, I would much rather fix.

    Looks like a MBR(Master Boot Record) problem. Insert your Windows disk, and Select repair your computer. Windows will identify the presence of any windows operating systems. and writes a new MBR.

    Check your settings in the MOBO manual.
