Windows 7: Start ups Failing

Start ups Failing

Hi guys I'm having this error the "boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible ...oxc000000e"
Basically what is happening is the past week or 2 I have been getting the BSOD kernel data inpage error at random times during gaming. After some research I downloaded crystal disk info and found my HD is running at a peak of 66 celsius!
Well now at random it decides to not even start up and I now have the boot manager failure.
I have Taken my hd out and put it into my girlfriends Hp Touchsmart 310 and after running my system restore disk everything booted up fine so I've made the assumption my Hd is still alive but why is this happening? Is my Mobo acting up? I couldn't boot her Hd in my pc either. I'm confused at this point and have no experience prior to this type of problem. Also I figured this was the best place to post this, if not please move it thank you all

Note: I do not have my windows disk that's why I made my own off my girlfriends pc.
My pc is custom built.

Still need severe help I havnt found a solution yet. Only thing I've been offered is maybe my CMOS battery is dead. Does this look like a motherboard related issue even though my mobo logo shows before blackscreening to windows boot log or whatever?

I replaced my CMOS battery which I'm sure was dead but not the root cause. If I can boot up into a recovery disk does that rule out hardware issues? Also I did notice both my recovery drive and main drive are marked as primary is that normal?

What didn't work? There are multiple steps, and the results of each are what is used to determine what should be done next.

So you need to be fully interactive reporting back the results of each step.

Normally the reply "Didn't work" means someone doesn't want to do the work.

This is the busiest tech forum on the web because every problem will be solved when you work with us closely. So reply with the results of each step, or questions on how to get them done.
