The error message means that the contents of your computer harddrive are either corrupt or your hard drive is faulty.

I don't know what you mean with sign in - since the computer wont start up with this error present.


To fix this problem you will either need a windows installation cd, or the recovery cd that came with the computer.


3 ways to fix this problem.


1. use the recovery cd that came with your computer to restore the computer to the original state.

  • insert the recovery cd into the computer and follow instructions provided with the cd.

2. use windows installation cd and enter recovery console and do a hard drive check

  • insert the windows installation cd, and start the cd when your computer gives a message "press any key to start from cd .."
  • windows setup will load, this will take a moment, when you are presented with options select or press R to enter recovery console
  • if the recovery console asks for a password enter your password or leave it blank if you don't have a password
  • Ones you are at c:\ type CHKDSK /R ( use /P /R, if complains)
  • after the scan is complete, type exit to restart the computer.
  • Your computer may work normally, if not then go to option 1 or 3

3. use windows installation cd to do a repair or fresh windows installation.

Stop 0x000000ED (UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME)


Hmm seen this a few times. This is most commonly caused by your NTFS format layering being corrupted. Meaning that the partition was either not completed when u loaded the operating system or the format has been corrupted from "hard shut downs" This is turning the pc off with the power button instead of going to "start" button and doing a soft shut down. U can try retrieving the format back but u will have programs that no longer responde. Easiest way to solve the issue is reloading your operating system.

Will not boot-up, then used safe mode, I got a "stop code"


STOP error 0xED means that the I/O subsystem attempted to mount the boot volume and it failed. STOP code 0x000000ED may also display "UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME" on the same STOP message. Problem is with the hard drive
Check this: What MS has to say http://support.microsoft.com/kb/297185
Most probably a damaged directory structure. Firs make sure that the hard drive is connected properly. Use your windows cd and boot from it. Go to Repair mode. Type Dir and if it says there is an error accessing the disk. (Directory Enumeration). Type D: (If u have a separate volume er I mean a partition) Type Dir and enter. If it shows the directory list thats fine. Type C: and go their again. (You have to hit enter after typing for every command) Type chkdsk C: or chkdsk /r C: (recommended)
Then it will scan the disk and do the repair. (There is a minimal loss of data if its damaged pretty too much). If you see that it repairs after the process type Dir and hit enter. If you see the directory list then its the time to boot the machine and its all done! If still error is shown type fixboot instead chkdsk Note: If chkdsk command is unavailable type help and hit enter to get a list of commands. Check for scandisk and use it (scandisk c:). Thats for older versions of windows.
Thanks for contacting Fixya.

Hi wht to do as error 0x000000ED


When you first restart your computer during the upgrade to Windows XP, or when you start Windows XP, you may receive the following error message:

STOP 0x000000ED (0xaaaaaaaa,0xbbbbbbbb,0xcccccccc,0xdddddddd)
UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME


Note In this error message, aaaaaaaa, bbbbbbbb, cccccccc, and dddddddd are hexadecimal numbers that may vary.

If you receive this error message when you restart the computer for the first time during an upgrade to Windows XP, your original operating system will still work correctly. In some cases, you may see a message that states that the wrong cable is being used. However, you may not see this message on computers that have a fast startup time.


Advanced troubleshootingThese methods are intended for advanced computer users. If you are not comfortable with advanced troubleshooting, you might want to ask someone for help, use the Microsoft Customer Support Services Web site to find other solutions, or contact Support. See the "Next steps" section for more information about the Microsoft Customer Support Services Web site.

Begin by reading the "Technical information about the error" section to understand why the error might be generated and the purpose of the message. Otherwise, you can skip this information and begin with "Method 1: Check the error message" to help you resolve the issue. Technical information about the errorThis section provides some technical background about the cause of this error message and why it might be generated.

This behavior can occur if either of the following conditions is true:
  • Your computer uses an Ultra Direct Memory Access (UDMA) hard disk controller, and the following conditions are true:
    • You use a standard 40-wire connector cable to connect the UDMA drive to the controller instead of the required 80-wire, 40-pin cable.
    • The basic input/output system (BIOS) settings are configured to force the faster UDMA modes.
  • The file system is damaged and cannot be mounted.
The purpose of this error message is to prevent the following two things:
  • Potential data loss caused by using an incorrect IDE cable for the faster UDMA modes. An IDE cable is a kind of cable used to connect storage devices, such as hard disks, inside a computer.
  • Continued access to a drive on which the file system is damaged

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!

Error message


I would suspect you have some bad memory. The error message says it can't write to some location, and that normally means the memory there is faulty. It might also mean a problem with the motherboard, but that's unlikely. Try removing the memory modules, clean their contacts by gently rubbing with a pencil eraser, and then reseat them in their sockets so they latch in place. If the problem continues, switch the modules if you have more than one installed. If the memory is the trouble, you will probably have other errors. But if you still get the same error message on shutdown, the motherboard is the culprit.

Blue Screen Error Message


Looks like you've been getting two different Stop errors...

The 1st error, 0X00000024, aka Stop 0x24, is a Windows 2000 error. (XP is just an updated version of 2000) Microsoft gives an explanation here.

For the 2nd error, starting with 0x000000ED, Microsoft's solution is here, with additional help here.

Windows XP won't boot and safe mode doesn't work


Well hate to give you the bad news but it sounds like your hard drive as died. The error code you mentioned (0X000000ED) designates file system damage. (Referenced here http://support.microsoft.com/kb/297185). Your best solution would be to replace the hard drive in a repair shop.
