I have a z575 with a SSD divided into a c drive and d drive. I just formatted the c drive assuming I could leave the d drive intact with the data. when I try a fresh install on the c drive with a Windows 10 disc, I get
Your PC Device needs to be repaired
A required device isn't connected or can't be accessed.
Error Code: 0xc000000f
Press Enter to try again
Press F8 for startup settings
Enter does nothing.
F8 does nothing.
Each time I reboot hoping to snag the dvd drive, I get immeditatly sent to the Blue screen above.
Should I be able to install windows 10 to the c drive regardless of the d drive?
I have been running Windows 10 with no problems other than a long lag on boot up, I think because of an old Windows 7 installation.
Any insight would be appreciated!

Sorry for the delayed response, just joined here recently and noticed your post.
To answer your question, you should still be able to install Windows 10 by plugging the hard drive into a different device.
As for the error you are getting, it would be recommended to test/check if you can still back up your files before proceeding with OKR (One Key Recovery) since doing this will erase all of your files.
This is also to make sure that the hard drive itself is still working and there are no damages under it as well.
You can also perform a diagnostics on the device/hard drive by downloading it through this link.
Let us know what will happen.
