Question about Sony VAIO Digital Studio PCV-RX550 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Error Message "STOP 0x000000ED UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME"

When I attempt to start my computer I get the error above. I attempted to go into SafeMode, I then would get a screen almost resembling the BIOS with
details about the computer, it would give me a count down, then the screen would start showing all the Window products: Windows.dll, Windows.exe, a whole list going down the screen. Afterwards it would look like the computer would boot because I would get the Windows XP screen, then the deadly cycle would happen again where I would get the error message above.
I simply want to be able to retrieve the information off the hard drive if that is possible. Please help!

There are two options to retrieve data: remove the drive and use it on an external box in another pc, or use an OS that boots from cd, like KUBUNTU, and record it in cds or dvds (though only LINUX systems will read them).
As for the causes, it might be a hardware fault (damaged HDD) or simply some driver you've updated recently and is giving hardware some suicide commands. And don't send it for repair if you have sensitive data in there, unless you can be there through the whole process.

How can i fix a blue screen error UNMOUNTABLE BOOT VOLUME. technical information is: STOP: 0X000000ED, etc.


One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test or replace all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your motherboard to your hard drive make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
you could run the check disk utility

click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will scan for and attempt to repair any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive then defragment your hard drive


hope this helps

Will not boot-up, then used safe mode, I got a "stop code"


STOP error 0xED means that the I/O subsystem attempted to mount the boot volume and it failed. STOP code 0x000000ED may also display "UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME" on the same STOP message. Problem is with the hard drive
Check this: What MS has to say http://support.microsoft.com/kb/297185
Most probably a damaged directory structure. Firs make sure that the hard drive is connected properly. Use your windows cd and boot from it. Go to Repair mode. Type Dir and if it says there is an error accessing the disk. (Directory Enumeration). Type D: (If u have a separate volume er I mean a partition) Type Dir and enter. If it shows the directory list thats fine. Type C: and go their again. (You have to hit enter after typing for every command) Type chkdsk C: or chkdsk /r C: (recommended)
Then it will scan the disk and do the repair. (There is a minimal loss of data if its damaged pretty too much). If you see that it repairs after the process type Dir and hit enter. If you see the directory list then its the time to boot the machine and its all done! If still error is shown type fixboot instead chkdsk Note: If chkdsk command is unavailable type help and hit enter to get a list of commands. Check for scandisk and use it (scandisk c:). Thats for older versions of windows.
Thanks for contacting Fixya.

I'm getting a stop error code 0X000000ED,0X86714368, 0X0000006, it's on a Dell Latitude D600 laptop?


Unmountable boot volume indicating that the system cannot successfully read the boot sector of the hard drive.
Run the diagnostics on the hard drive, if it fails, replace the hard drive.
If diags pass, boot to the recovery console, run chkdsk /r If it still gives the error after that, you can try reinstalling windows.
If that fails to resolve, then again, replace the hard disk drive

Unmountable boot volume


hi,

-this can be a hardware problem or a software problem
-run diagnostics first on the computer
-turn off computer; while the computer is off, press and hold the "Fn" key then press power at the same time to initialize the test
-if you find error message like 0142 - this is a hard drive failure; contact your manufacturer for replacing your hard drive
-if no error is found, it is a corrupted Windows; you need to reinstall Windows, ensure you consult local technician to back-up files before installation.

cheers!
