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.

Hello, I own an acer aspire one ZG5 netbook, and today I got an error while trying to start it, the blue screen to be exact. Here's the error: A problem has been detected and windows has shut down to...


Hi Stefi,

An unmountable boot volume error means that the operating system cannot boot from the hard drive either because the boot files are corrupted, the hard drive is faulty or there is a problem with the cable connecting the hard drive to the computer. If you are booting your PC and come across a Blue Screen of Death stating UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME, don't despair.

You would need to repair the volume inorder to fix this issues.

To repair the volume, follow these steps:

  1. Start your computer by inserting the Windows startup disks or the Windows installation disk if your computer can start from the CD drive.
  2. When the Welcome to Setup screen appears, press R to select the repair option.
  3. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the Windows installation that you want to access from the Recovery Console.
  4. Type the administrator password when you are prompted to do this.

    Note If no administrator password exists, press ENTER.
  5. At the command prompt, on the drive where Windows is installed, type chkdsk /r, and then press ENTER.
  6. At the command prompt, type exit, and then press ENTER to restart your computer.
  7. After you repair the volume, check your hardware to isolate the cause of the file system damage.
If this procedure does not work, repeat it, but type fixboot instead of chkdsk /r in step 5.


Hope this helps .
Please let me know if you need further help

Hello

Thank you for using
FixYa for your problem


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 /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.

If all went well, you should now be able to boot back into Windows without a problem!

Good luck!

Startup repair won't run


"Unmountable boot volume" this problem is your hard disk partition which is failure to recognize & identify the operating system running on the hard disk. Reformat your hard disk and put another operating system to run again your computer.
