Dell Inspiron Unmountable Boot Volume,

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.

UN MOUNTABLE BOOT VOLUME ERROR - BLUE SCREEN on a dell latitude D505 laptop


try to boot to safe mode using F8 key on boot and then recover system or reinstall OS

UNMOUNTABLE-BOOT-VOLUME DELL LATITUDE D610 technical information: *** STOP:0x000000ED (0x86D3A900,0xC0000006,0x00000000,0x00000000)


Hi,

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.

Message displayed- problem detected and windows has shut down to prevent damage. Restart using safe mode-tried this but it did not work. Tech Information STOP OXOOOOOOED Unmountable-_Boot_Volume


If this is a corruption it may be fixable, again this depends upon your version of windows, however please be aware this may be a corrupt hard drive so you may need to replace this and reinstall.

Try this first

  1. Start your computer by inserting the Windows startup disks or the Windows installation disk if your computer can start from the CD drive.
  2. When the Welcome to Setup screen appears, press R to select the repair option.
  3. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the Windows installation that you want to access from the Recovery Console.
  4. Type the administrator password when you are prompted to do this.

    Note If no administrator password exists, press ENTER.
  5. At the command prompt, on the drive where Windows is installed, type chkdsk /r, and then press ENTER.
  6. At the command prompt, type exit, and then press ENTER to restart your computer.
  7. After you repair the volume, check your hardware to isolate the cause of the file system damage.

Startup unsuccessfull


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!

Blue screen and windows shut down


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)
