My ibm thinkpad will not start up, even in safe mode. unmountable boot volume keeps coming up


Hi there.

Remove all usb flash drives or external hard drives connected to the laptop.
If no flash drives or external hard drives are present the you will need to reboot your system and press the delete key repeatedly until you get into the BIOS. Once in the BIOS you will need to locate boot disk priority. Set priority 1 to the laptop's main drive and priority 2 to the CD/DVD drive.
Now it should first try boot on your hard drive with your operating system on it. If after this you still get the unmountable boot volume error then your hard drive may be corrupt.

My little sisters dell inspiron mini just got the Unmountable boot volume message. I've looked online but most of the options require a cd which is of course not helpful when the mini doesn't have...


The best option is, look around for external cd-rom with usb connection, and reformat the laptop.You need to go into the bios and change the boot order to make your usb cd-rom to first in the boot list. Once the usb cd-rom is plugged into used port, with operation system cd in it, on your laptop..press F2..go into the bios, to the boot order make your usb cd-rom on top boot list,,then save changes to exit the bios. Once again the system reboots..with message PRESS ANY KEY TO BOOT FROM CD ROM.. so just simple steps to follow..its not going to be expensive..good luck

How do I fix or repair my HP mini 1000 Netbook with it being stuck in a boot loop? I am getting the "unmountable_boot_volume screen. My netbook does not have a CD ROM drive.


Check your bios to ensure its first boot option is set to the hard drive instead of CD drive or USB drive. If you have a thumb drive plugged in, unplug the USB and try again. On your boot screen there should be an option to hit a key to enter bios (Usually Esc, F2 or Del). Hit whichever key it requests and enter Bios. Once in Bios look for Boot Order and check to see where the Hard Drive is in the order. If it is not set to #1 then do as it says to set it to the first option. Once done hit F10 to save and Exit and return to boot.

If your notebook came with a Windows installation disk, you can fix the issue this way:

1. Insert the installation disk into your CD/DVD drive, and boot up your computer.

2. At the Welcome screen, hit the R key on your keyboard. This will launch Recovery mode.
You should now see a DOS prompt on your screen.

3. Type chkdsk /p and hit Enter. This will launch a utility that scans for hard drive errors.
The process may take some time, so be patient and allow it to do its job.

4. After the chkdsk is done, type fixboot and hit Enter to repair any damaged boot files which may have become corrupted. When prompted to choose "Yes" or "No," type Y for "Yes."

5. Type exit and press the Enter key to reboot your computer.

Assuming chkdsk was successful in fixing the disk errors, you should now be able to boot back into Windows.


If you do not have a Windows installation disk, but have access to another computer with a CD/DVD writer, you can download Hiren's Boot CD to help fix your corrupted boot drive.

1) Download the Hiren's disk image, and follow these instructions for burning the boot CD.

2) To ensure your system boots from the CD you've created, follow these instructions on how to set your BIOS to boot from CDROM.

3) Alternately, you can download a free utility that will create a bootable USB flash drive containing all of Hiren's tools. The above link also provides step by step instruction on creating a Hiren's USB drive, as well as how to set your BIOS to boot from it.

4) Boot the problematic pc from either your Hiren's CD or Hiren's USB drive.

5) Once you've successfully booted your system using Hirens, you will see a menu with a variety
of tools and utilities. Navigate to the hard disk tools menu, and run HDD Regenerator.

You'll need even more patience this time -- as HDD Regenerator is a bit more comprehensive in its error scanning than chkdsk. On the bright side, HDD Regenerator has a reputation for repairing disk errors that chkdsk was unable to.

Good luck, and I hope this helps!

My laptop won't boot from cd


to reset the BIOS, there is a small battery somewhere in your computer. if you unplug it for 3 seconds, it will reset the BIOS. I RECOMMEND THAT YOU DO NOT TRY THIS! get a service professional. If this doesn't work you might need to get a new laptop.

Acer aspire one 1640Z XP BIOS RECOVERY WON'T READ USB WITH BIOS


if I understood correctly you have the recovery software loaded on a stick flash drive and you want to boot from usb to restore the pc .....There are a few things that you have to know about to do that ...
first you have to go to bios and enable boot from another device ....other than hdd /cd or flopy ... for some elder bios this isnt even a choice ..or ..if it is ,,it will be as a sub options into the hdd...choice ..
another thing that you have to keep in mind ..is that you have to disable the other options to force it boot from this one ...or ....to press f8 on boot and manually choose the usm or the stick name that will appear on boot devices...
the most important thing is that if you already formatted the hdd it does notr have a usb driver loaded and that why willl not see the device ...also the device you are using to boot ...has to be specially formatted to be bootable ....this is made ussualy with a hp format tool ...and it is explained in more than one places on the net ...just look for making a boot-able stick (usb device)
in short ...make sure the sticvk is boot-able ...second the pc ha s teh capability to boot from another device ...and this is a feature that you already enabled like first boot device ...
than things will be easy ...it will ask you to press any key to boot from the usb ...and continue like an installation from the cd ...
if you cannot do it ...I recommend using a cd ..or an image that you will ***** in a virtual cd ...for those that do not have cd drive ( use daemon tool )

Hi there
"Unmountable Boot Volume." means that the system 32 folder has become corrupt and probably you will have to recover the system.
If you have XP CD for a clean install, you have to change the boot order from within the bios (F2 on boot up) and tell it to boot from CD.
This will change the boot order and allow you to reinstall the OS.
Be warned that you WILL loose data if this is the only option open to you.

Good luck
