A system BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) is a first program that is executed when you turn on your system. It ensures that the chips, ports, hard disks, video display card, and CPU (Central Processing Unit) are working together. Upgradation in BIOS is performed by a firmware upgrade, which is called as 'flashing'. While BIOS upgradation is an easy process, the data saved in the hard drive might become inaccessible after the completion of the process. This happens primarily due to a bootable error message that appears at the time of booting the system. In such cases, if you need to access the hard drive data, then you can restore in from an updated backup. However, if no backup is backup is available, or the backup file is damaged, then you will need to use advanced third-party Data Recovery Software to recover the data.
To illustrate the above scenario, consider a practical case where you have a Windows 7 based computer system. You upgrade your BIOS on your system. However, when you try to boot your system after upgradataion, you receive a BSOD (Blue Screen Of Death).
After the above error message appears, your system becomes unbootable and the data saved in the hard drive becomes inaccessible. Additionally, the same error message pops up every time you attempt to boot your system.
The primary reason liable for the occurrence of a BSOD error message in such cases is that the Windows 7 operating system sees your system as a different machine.
To resolve the BSOD error message and access the hard drive data, you will need to format the hard drive and reinstall Windows 7 operating system. While formatting the hard drive proves to be an adequate solution to overcome the error message, it also results in erasing the data saved in the hard drive. In such cases, the data erased after the formatting can be recovered by using advanced third-party Data Recovery Software.
A data recovery tools ensures complete recovery of all the files, irrespective of their reason of inaccessibility.
Windows Data Recovery is a user-friendly data recovery software that recovers data from formatted FAT12, FAT16, FAT32, VFAT, NTFS, and NTFS5 file system volumes. The original data in hard drive, however, remains untouched and unmodified. Compatible with Windows 7, Vista, XP, 2003, and 2000, the read only tool allows you to store the recovered data at your desired location.
