Hi!
- First of all, please do not resuscitate old forum threads.
- The BSOD number 0x7B (INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE) means that Windows doesn't find the boot device, for some reason...

Nope, nope. If Windows cannot find the boot device, it will raise an IO1_INITIALIZATION_FAILED BSOD (0x69) (which is even pretty famous on ReactOS). This is not to be confused with INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE (0x7B) which is actually quite explicit: Windows knows where to boot from but cannot access that location. Most of the time, the reason is missing drivers in the storage stack (for whatever reason).

and it gets complete without any problem but the problem still didn't solve by that.
so, i search about it a lot
and find this article about this 7b error as you can see http://www.deskdecode.com/how-to-fix-bl ... x0000007b/
and you what
changing sata options in BIOS does slved my problem :D

but thanks for your help
my computer is fixed now

and there is one more question you you dont mind :)
can changing this setting in bios is safe?
did i need to re-change it after some time or what?

Yes, it sounds like a storage driver problem, and changing the BIOS makes up for not having the driver. For instance, if it were set to RAID and the necessary RAID driver were not installed, you'd get this error. But if you disable RAID or AHCI and change to ATA/SATA mode, it should work without the special driver.

If this were Windows and you wanted to run it without changing the setting (or you want to change the setting later to a mode that requires a special driver), I'd say do a repair install and install the driver when prompted to hit F6 if you need to install any drivers that are required to get Windows to install. I imagine it would be possible to use the console mode to somehow manually register the driver, but I don't know how right off hand. The command console should rely on hardware (BIOS or UEFI) and not crash.

And to answer the question, there is no harm in changing the setting to get it to run. You just won't have whatever capability you disable in there.
