STOP: 0x0000007В : How To Fix STOP 0x0000007B Errors (INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE)
It's a harddisk driver that's faulty or missing. Most of the time when switchin from IDE to AHCI mode in bios. Or you need a special SATA driver which isn't installed yet.

All of this is ridiculous in this case. I think many thing are corrupt and that's why it can't find/load the sata driver.

Why not simply enable system restore points? Install 5 updates.... test if system is still stable. If not do a "system restore". install updates 1 by 1 after system restore. So you know which update caused it!

Finally I implemented the procedure from the article mentioned above and got System Restore Points functionality working! BY the way the renewed link to the package mentioned their is http://www.pwrusr.com/wp-content/uploads/System Restore V2.zip

Now I will install the updates as you've advised.

How many updates have to be installed?
Write down which updates you installed.

First do top 10%, reboot. system working?
Do the same trick again and again, untill you know the faulty batch of patches.
Do a system restore and skip that batch of patches but do the other patches.
Try to install as much as possible

What patch(es) causes the problem?

Actually a lot of updates have been already installed in the restored system that is luckily stable. So not that much have to be installed:

7 important:
Update for Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 Edition (KB2718704) 91KB
Update for Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 Edition (KB2719857) 585 KB

Update for Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 Edition (KB2732059) 288 KB
Update for Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 Edition (KB2749655) 245 KB
Update for Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 Edition (KB2750841) 2.9 MB
Windows Internet Explorer 9 for Windows Server 2008 R2 for xrj4-based Systems 35.5 MB

and 2 optional:
Internet Explorer 10 for Windows Server 2008 R2 forx64-based Systems 69,1MB
Kyocera Mita Corporation - Printers - Kyocera TASKalfa 300i KX 21,5 MB

The following have already been installed today:

Update for Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 Edition (KB2709630)

Update for Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 Edition (KB2660075)

I think the faulty thing should be in IE10 as I remember that some days ago I installed IE10 skipping IE9.

Now, yes. All updates installed, system seems to be stable. I'm checking it with sfc /scannow and SUR checker.

If everything is ok I will proceed with .Net framework 3.5 and 4.0 and all their updates.

Either the problem is deep inside and waiting for some trigger or we got round it successfully somehow.
