    You need a disc sorry to say if you try and format you will have no operating system easiest way is to get get an xp or vista operating system disc from somewhere make sure your laptop is off put disc in drive first then start notebook follow on screen instructions usually its the partition with least space left that you format good luck

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

Hello, you relly need to reformat it you can use an os installer suach as linux or windows using a usb flash drive, but you have to transfer the installer cd to the usb drive by using the wintoflash application. Once you've done that now you can reformat and install os in your notebook using your usb flash drive.

Nx6110 boot issues


Try using an external CD drive. Some machines will allow you to boot from an external and some won't. If yours does and the external will boot from the CD, then your CD drive is bad. Usually it's the optical eye that goes out on these, unfortunately you have to replace the whole thing.
