If it be the connector cable problem then replace the 40-wire cable with an 80-wire UDMA cable. If it's a BIOS settings problem then load the 'Fail-Safe' default settings, and then reactivate the most frequently used options such as USB Support. If it's a damaged file system case then:- 1.Insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer. Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted. 2.When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console. 3.If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console. 4.When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER. 5.At the command prompt, type chkdsk /r , and then press ENTER. 6.At the command prompt, type exit , and then press ENTER to restart your computer. This takes a bit longer, but the system should boot back into Windows.

Unmountable boot volume

If you are seeing 'unmountable boot volume' when booting your laptop / notebook, then this would suggest that the internal disk drive has become corrupted or perhaps has failed. I would recommend downloading a copy of Hiren's Boot CD from - this is a CD image file (.ISO) and needs to be burnt on to a blank CD disc.Boot from Hiren's CD and select DOS programs which will give you access to a selection of Disk tools including HDAT2 which can be used to test and repair bad sectors on the internal disk drive. There are also utilities which can read the SMART data from the drive and give an indication of any problems it may have encountered.

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.

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.

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
