Microsoft published a workaround to repair your PCs

The company rolled out its regular monthly patch to Windows devices with build 15063.674 on October 10, but after the update some users with WSUS-managed devices faced the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) and the message “INACCESSIBLE BOOT DEVIE”, without the ability to boot up their machines.

Fortunately, Microsoft has published an official workaround to return the PCs to their normal working state, while regular HOME devices are not affected.

Microsoft is aware of a publishing issue with the October 10th, 2017 monthly security updates for Windows 10 version 1703 (KB4041676) and version 1607 (KB4041691), and Windows Server 2016 (KB4041691) for WSUS/SCCM managed devices. Customers that download updates directly from Windows Update (Home and consumer devices) or Windows Update for Business are not impacted. 

The fixes outlined in the link below are aimed at the advanced users, so keep that in mind.
