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

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.

I have a Dell Latitude D600 and it comes up with a message "unmountable boot volume" can you please help me? Thanks, April


hey... the problem is most probably due to missing boot.ini file... to set it right, insert the windows disc in the drive, boot from it... in the setup select recovary console... repair the windows... it should solve the problem...

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

Dell Latitude c640 Disable BIOS memory


Just use recovery console of windows xp bootable media and use the following command.

chkdsk (to check the volume).
fixmbr
fixboot

It happens due to improper shutdown methods which has caused the system volume to corrupt the MBR.

unmountable boot volume means that either your system is corrupted, your boot.ini is damaged, or your boot sector is corrupt. Try this:

"You can boot to the XP cd and when you see the Welcome to setup press the letter R
You will get a dos prompt
Then type "chkdsk /p" without the quotes and hit enter
When that is done type "fixboot" and hit enter
"Y" and enter at the prompt
Then type "exit" and hit enter
The system will now reboot into Windows"
