Question about Dell Dimension 5150 (DIM515MIN) PC Desktop

1 Answer

I have a dell dimension 5150. I received the error message unmountable_boot_volume with the tech info STOP: 0x000000ED (0X86F8E030,0X0000006,0X00000000,0X00000000) I've tried disabling the non existant floppy drive and changing the boot sequence to favour the dvd rom drive but it repeatedly returns with "floppy diskette seek failure". The dvd drive light flickers but it refuses to boot from it.

Dell dimension e310 desktop error message unmountable boot volu me


> unmountable

The disk-drive cannot be "mounted", i.e., the motherboard cannot access it

> boot volume

To "boot" a computer is to load a small "loader" program from the disk-drive;
that program "pulls-up-by-the-boot-straps", to read the rest of Windows from the disk-drive.


If the disk-drive has "failed", then you'll get messages like the one that you reported.

Replace the disk-drive.

UNMOUNTABLE-BOOT-VOLUME DELL LATITUDE D610 technical information: *** STOP:0x000000ED (0x86D3A900,0xC0000006,0x00000000,0x00000000)


Hi,

Good day. Regarding your issue, computer hardware wears out over time, it's a fact. Your hard drive works constantly reading and writing data, and this (among other factors) may cause errors on certain parts of your system. 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 /f or /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.

Note: other windows version like Vista or Windows 7 have a Repair option once you use the installation disc to fix this problem.

Hope this information help in resolving your issue. Have a great day.

I'm getting a stop error code 0X000000ED,0X86714368, 0X0000006, it's on a Dell Latitude D600 laptop?


Unmountable boot volume indicating that the system cannot successfully read the boot sector of the hard drive.
Run the diagnostics on the hard drive, if it fails, replace the hard drive.
If diags pass, boot to the recovery console, run chkdsk /r If it still gives the error after that, you can try reinstalling windows.
If that fails to resolve, then again, replace the hard disk drive
