Whenever the computer is turned on, it is "shut down" to prevent damage to the computer. Technical Information Message:
STOP: 0x0000000ED appears on blue screen and freezes all function. Followed recommendations but they do not work: Use safe mode to restart, press f8 to select advanced start up options. I am unable to get to the Advanced Start Up Options. Help!
Hello! Have you made any changes to your PC recently? Hardware change or software install/uninstall? If not, this could mean you HDD is dying or there is a problem with a drvier. You may be able to do a repair install if the hard drive is not damaged because according to what I've found it is UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_SEQUENCE STOP:0x0000000ED. It means the there is somthing either not right with the boot sector or the file system. It's likely that when you boot you computer, if you press f10 on some OEM computers at POST (Power On Self Test) you can access a screen that allows you to repair your computer when you follow on screen directions. Be careful! If you have data you want to keep on your main C: drive, all will be restored to factory condition if you choose the wrong option! Be sure to choose repair! This option overwrites certain OS files. If you have Windows XP disk you can boot off that an do a recovery console /r when the CD boots.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Good day. Regarding your issue, computer hardware wears out over time, it's a fact. Your hard drive
works constantly reading and writing data, and this (among other
factors) may cause errors on certain parts of your system.
If you receive the "unmountable boot volume" error and have an installation disk, you still have a chance to save your system.
1. Insert your XP installation disk into an optical drive and boot up your computer.
2. When you see a welcome screen, hit the R key on your keyboard. This will enter you into recovery mode with a DOS prompt.
3. Now type chkdsk /f or /p and hit Enter. This will launch a utility which will check for errors on your hard drive.
4. After the process is done, type fixboot and hit
Enter to repair any damaged boot files which may have become corrupted.
When asked to say yes or no, type the Y key on your keyboard.
5. Type exit and press the Enter key to reboot your computer.
Note: other windows version like Vista or Windows 7 have a Repair option once you use the installation disc to fix this problem.
Hope this information help in resolving your issue. Have a great day.
Alright, I helped somebody out with this yesterday so I am going to just copy over my other solution, for the same issue with an unmountable drive: You need to repair the Master Boot Record. This is a fairly complicated
procedure so if you are not confident in your computer skills,
this issue is worth hiring a professional to handle. What you will
need is a bootable CD, such as a PE application, which you can use as a
platform to run checkdisk. Boot from this CD and then un-mount your
internal hard drive. Run
CheckDisk (chkdsk command on cmd) with both of the parameters /f and /r This
should go through your hard drive and repair
your MBR. Reboot your computer and you should be good to go. If
this does not work, run a repair-reinstall. This reinstalls all system
files including your MBR and bootable files on the X drive. Good
luck, please rate my solution!
For the issue of BSOD of Unmountable Boot volume, the only solution so far is to reinstall the system. If you are unaware of how to do it, it would be easier to contact Dell technical support and allow them to guide you thru it. (if your warranty is active, it's free)
