Won't start up error message uncountable boot Volumn


Your error was probably Unmountable Boot Volume. Windows 7 I presume. It would be nice to know any symptoms or actions that happened just prior to this. My guess is that your master boot record or the boot volume sector was damaged. Now, before we go any further, how valuable is the data on this machine. If very valuable, you should try to recover data before proceeding with fixes. That may be possible by removing the hard drive and attaching it via USB to another computer. Is that possible for you?

If your data is safe or unimportant, you'll need to boot up with a W7 DVD and go into "repair". Then run Command Line. I suspect fixmbr may fix your problem.

Hello, I own an acer aspire one ZG5 netbook, and today I got an error while trying to start it, the blue screen to be exact. Here's the error: A problem has been detected and windows has shut down to...


Hi Stefi,

An unmountable boot volume error means that the operating system cannot boot from the hard drive either because the boot files are corrupted, the hard drive is faulty or there is a problem with the cable connecting the hard drive to the computer. If you are booting your PC and come across a Blue Screen of Death stating UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME, don't despair.

You would need to repair the volume inorder to fix this issues.

To repair the volume, follow these steps:

  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.
If this procedure does not work, repeat it, but type fixboot instead of chkdsk /r in step 5.


Hope this helps .
Please let me know if you need further help

Getting "unmountable boot volume" error


Windows is totally corrupted - you will have to reinstall it. For that you will need an external CD unit and the recovery disk that came with the Mini. If you don't have it then you can either buy it from HP or borrow a similar XP install disk from a friend and use it and your key.

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!

UNMOUNTABLE DISK VOLUME Message on ACER Aspire One.


Unmountable boot volume is most likely an indication of a failing hard drive. Boot to your Windows CD and run CHKDSK /R and see if issue resolves. If it doesn't then you are probably replacing the hard drive.

HOW CAN I FIX MY COMPUTER? ITS READING UNMOUNTABLE BOOT VOLUME?


You need your Windows XP cd for this fix.

Boot from the Windows XP CD and at the first prompt, press "r" for repair. Press 1 when asked to choose windows installation and then enter the admnistrator password. If you don;t have one, just press "enter" and it should show you "c:\windows>"

At this prompt, type the following

chkdsk /r

THis should take quite sometime but will fix the problem at the end. when you get the c:\windows prompt again, type the word "exit" and your system will reboot and load windows XP normally
