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

  • Method 1: Repair the volumeNote the second parameter (0xbbbbbbbb) in the error message. You might have to regenerate the error in order to write it down.

    If the second parameter (0xbbbbbbbb) of the Stop error is 0xC0000032, the cause of the error is that the file system is damaged. You can try to repair the volume to see whether this resolves the error. If the second parameter is not 0xC0000032, see "Method 2: Check the IDE cable and load Fail-Safe settings" for help.
    Some things that you should know before you try this solution


    • If the file system is damaged, you can use chkdsk /r command to repair the volume. However, if you use the chkdsk /r command, you may lose some data.

    • You will need the Windows startup disks or the Windows installation disk. If you do not have them, contact the computer manufacturer for help in obtaining the disks.

    • You will need the administrator password to complete the steps.
    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.

    If you are still unable to resolve the issue, please see the "Next steps" section for help.

My acer 5920 hhas suddenly stopped working, it is showing the error code 0x000000ED (0x867A52D0, 0xC0000185, 0x00000000, 0x00000000) Help!


STOP 0x000000ED UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME - this is issued when the data on the hard disk is completely corrupted.
Reinstall Windows and if the problem returns very quickly then the hard disk itself is dying - you will have to replace it and reinstall one more time.

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.

It basically says that you have to go into the Recovery Console and run chkdsk /r. Also this site has a fix for this type of STOP error that you can try to install after you are able to run chkdsk /r on the hard drive. Let me know if you need any more assistance with how to get into the recovery console, installing the update, etc....

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.

Boot volume error


A stop error indicating UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME is nearly always symptomatic of a hard drive that has died. Take your PC to a local technician to be serviced.
