Windows 7: The boot selection failed 0xc000000e

windows 7 x64
The boot selection failed 0xc000000e

I have an Intel i5, Windows 7 Ultimate, and SSD main and 2 HDs SATA.

One day, blue screen BSOD appeared and Pc is restarted. Then appears the following error:

Window failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:
1.Insert ....
2. .... ... status: 0xc000000e info: The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible

Also I detect that BIOS only detected the SSD, not 2 HDs.

Sometimes, Windows can be inited, but not works good.
Trying to copy data from F: to a usb external, copied for a short time and after a certain time Win7 is unresponsive. This also happened in safe mode.

After several reboots, now not boot Win7 and I get the error "The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible. And the BIOS only detects the SSD.

Any suggestions?
