Bluetooth driver installation deleted all my files and windows is unable to start

2012-08-16, 15:29 PM

Today I wanted to transfer my photos from my cell phone to my Lenovo ideapad y560, but it said my bluetooth driver is missing. When I looked at device manager I saw a yellow exclamation mark next to it. There is a "drivers" folder on my D:\ drive that includes all the drivers for my laptop. Those drivers were there when I bought my laptop. I run the bluetooth driver setup from there but it took too long. While it was running I noticed my files on the desktop are missing. I looked documents, pictures folders but everything was missing. I quickly shut down the computer by holding down the power button and now windows does not start. I says "Boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible". What should I do not to further damage my computer and how I can recover my files? I don't have a windows installation disc. Should I try One Key recovery? I don't know it will work in this state or even it works it my affect my remaining files, if any remained.


 My very important work related files are missing not just some photos or videos, so please help!

Well what can i say,


you did everything that shouldn't be done.


You don't shut down a computer while it  driver set up is taking place.


And pressing down on the power button,didn't allow windows,


to shut down safely.


İ assume you don't have any backups?


No system image of the entire system?


What you can do is


use a linux live cd to  rescue whatever is still available.


Do you want that?


İ can get you a link,with instructions on how to use it.


You can use One Key Recovery to restore system to a backup,


if you took one beforehand .Did you?


Did you create a Windows system repair disc ?


Have you tried booting into Safe mode?and from there,you could do a system repair.


so you have options.
