I was trying to update my Radeon graphics driver but ran into a error (1603) and I went to their website to find what to do. Then I downloaded the requested AMD Cleanup Utility. I ran it and it said to boot in safe mode and so I did after that it needed to reboot the pc and so I tried but the my pc ran into a problem. It tried to fix it but the it displayed innaccessible boot device. I have tried some troubleshooting but it can't even start in safe mode. What can I do in this situation?

First make sure your PC is trying to boot from the correct drive. when you see the bios screen press f12 for the boot menu and choose the boot manager. If there is no boot manager, than choose your system disk.
If that doesn't work try using WinPE startup repair https://www.windowscentral.com/how-use-startup-repair-fix-boot-problems-windows-10

If that doesn't work you can try and rebuild your boot partition.

Were you able to get to the boot menu (f12)? If so what were your boot options?

Try unplugging your PC, holding down the power button for about 10 seconds to clear the RAM, plug it back in and try to boot. If that doesn't help try booting with one stick of RAM
Otherwise, you are probably looking at a clean install https://forums.tomshardware.com/faq/how-to-do-a-clean-installation-of-windows-10.3170366/ or possibly a failed hard drive.
My boot options were my ssd and hdd.

In this case should I do clean install or reset my pc from the Windows troubleshooting menu?
