0xc000000e Boot Selection Failed - Dual-Boot Boot Sequence Issue?
I currently bought a new PC and set it up in Dual-Boot configuration (Windows XP Home 32-Bit and Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit) but I'm having an issue when I go to change the Boot Sequence in the BIOS.
-I have an ASUS P8Z77-V Deluxe Motherboard with 3 x Seagate 2TB hard drives (2 are plugged in the Intel SATA III ports while the 3rd one is in the Intel SATA II port). SATA ports are set to AHCI.
-Boot Sequence is Blu-Ray Player (ASUS BW-12B1ST) then Disk 1.
-My hard drives are setup as follow (unfortunately I can't get a screenshot because I'm not on my problematic PC. If necessary, I can attached them later if needed).
-Disk 1 (750 GB Partition with Windows XP) (1250 GB Partition for Data)
-Disk 2 (2TB single partition for Windows 7)
-Disk 3 (2TB single partition for Data)
-I initially deleted all the partitions from my previous installs using the Windows XP CD (I had re-installed windows multiple times trying to troubleshoot). Afterward, I created the 750 GB Partition on Disk 1 and installed Windows XP
-With Windows XP installed, I then installed Windows 7 (which created the partition on Disk 2).
-On the Windows Boot Manager, I see both O/S and I'm able to boot and work out of both O/S with no issues.
*I have not made any other changes apart from what was mentioned here (for example, I'm not sure if I need to mark my Windows 7 hard drive (Disk 2) as being active)
-When I go to change the Boot Sequence in my BIOS to Disk 1 then Blu-Ray Player, I am able to boot in Windows XP but Windows 7 gives me the following error:
0xc000000e - The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible.
-The error no longer occurs when I return the Boot Sequence to Blu-Ray > Disk 1.
-If I go into the BIOS prior to seeing the Windows Boot Manager, the error does not happen and I'm able to boot normally (regardless of the Boot Sequence).
-Not sure if it's related, but I had originally set the SATA ports to IDE (because I did not have the necessary drivers on my Windows XP CD). When I got a slipstreamed CD, I changed my SATA to AHCI, deleted all my partitions (using the Windows XP CD) and re-installed both my operating systems. Seeing as I've re-installed everything, I assumed no other changes were necessary (for example, registry changes).
Ideally, with both my O/S installed I thought I should change my boot sequence to start with the Hard Drives but I find it strange that when I change my boot sequence, I can no longer boot Windows 7 (unless if I enter the BIOS before Windows Boot Manager appears). Has anyone seen this problem or have any thoughts?
Thanks in advance for your time and as I've mentioned previously, I can provide additional info if required when I get back on my problematic PC.
