It is very strange. The error "A required device isn't connected or can't be accessed." points to some device problems. Please unplug all external devices (pendrives, USB disks, Memory Cards, printer, etc.), and restart computer.I'm new... greetings =]
HELP! - (nice tool), but I've made an error, hopefully not fatal (please!) as all my data is still on the drive - I didn't make a retore point before using this... :S stupid.
I clicked on "TURN ON All Restrictions" :-( - realizing my mistake I tried to run the tool again, but nothing will run now.
My laptop screen soon went dark, so have rebooted only to be presented with a blue screen of death.
"Your pc ran into a problem and needs to restart" - "were just collecting some error info then we will restart for you".
Stop code: Critical Process died.
Then another blue screen appears and reports:
Your Pc couldn't start properly.
A required device isn't connected or can't be accessed.
- Error code: 0xc0000225
Press Enter to try again.
Press F8 for start-up Settings
Press Esc for UEFI Fireware settings
Pressing F8 and selecting any of the safe mode options does not work, screen goes dark.
I really would appreciate any wizards help to get me out of this fix - cheers.

Have you tried to unplug external devices? One of Hard_Configurator options blocks execution from external devices.Hi thanks for your reply.
Nope, there is no device problems it all been working fine right upto this point.
I was looking at this... Secure Windows - Software restriction Policies to Windows Home
...so I installed Startup Sentinel first then saw your reply for the "GUI to configure SRP in Windows Home", option (but forgot to make a system retore point first before I used it) ... i ended up clicking on "TURN ON All Restrictions".. and at that point, it all went sideways.
Many thanks indeed or any help.
Yes, you can try first: Disable driver signature enforcement.I dont think sytem restore was even switched on.... I'm not being given any option to access it when pressing F8.
...the safe mode options are not working.. :-(
...haven't tried these ones yet though.
7. Disable driver signature enforcement.
8. Disable early launch anti-malware protection.
...should I try "Disable driver signature enforcement"?
would a usb recovery tool work do you think?
