this is my 1st post here,so I wanna say hi.
Last night i got windows update notice,I`m running Windows 7 ultimate 64bit,so I click install,leave my laptop on charger and fell asleep, when I woke up it I saw a that system couldn't start normally and gave me start up repair option,tried it and no luck,tried again after few mins,no go. tried system restore 2 days before update,still no luck. So while I was reading this thread for solution (on my sisters laptop lol) I checked BIOS settings and in sata config I saw it was set on AHCI then I set to IDE and let it boot to see if that's got to do something with my issue,and it booted up nicely with ˝windows finished system restore successfully˝
Wanted to share this with you and to ask what caused this? coz I don't know if it was IDE or AHCI setup before.
Few weeks before I had same issue and resolved it with fresh win install
