Re: Error message - UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME

Hi,

Every time I turn on my PC it won't start up - it restarts when Windows XP tries to load up. It came up with the following error message when I tried, unsuccessfully, to run the recovery program:-

UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME STOP:0*000000ED(0*85B949DO, 0*C0000006, 0*00000000, 0*00000000).

I don't have a Windows XP CD. Is there any way I can rectify the problem without using a Windows XP CD?

Thanks.

Matt.

Not really. At best you'll most likely need to reinstall XP and at worst you'll need to purchase a new hard drive and then reinstall XP.

You can narrow the problem down though - grab something like the UBCD and run the hard drive diagnostics checks on there. That should tell you whether it's because the hard drive is dead of the windows partition is just corrupt.
