I bluescreened the other day and went to reboot, and was not able to get back into windows, I got the stop code whea uncorrectable error. I do not want to lose my data, so what are my choices here? I've tried booting from another drive and transfering data to a different drive but that doesnt seem to work. ive tried launching in safe mode but that wont work either.

So you get a whea error booting off one drive but not another?

as WHEA errors are hardware errors. So it could be you need to copy the data off that drive as it could be cause or victim

is this windows 10 or 11?

On another PC, download the Windows 10 media creation tool and use it to make a win 10 installer on USB (its a handy boot drive)


you can use this to copy data off the drive
boot from installer
  • on screen after languages, choose repair this pc, not install.
  • choose troubleshoot
  • choose advanced
  • choose command prompt
  • type notepad and press enter
  • in notepad, select file>open
  • Use file explorer to copy any files you need to save to USB or another hdd

I attempted this but was unable to copy any data off of it. I'm stumped and really want to recover this data but dont wanna pay for it. ITs windows 10.
