If you receive the “unmountable boot volume” error and have an installation disk, you still may 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!

My ibm thinkpad will not start up, even in safe mode. unmountable boot volume keeps coming up


Hi there.

Remove all usb flash drives or external hard drives connected to the laptop.
If no flash drives or external hard drives are present the you will need to reboot your system and press the delete key repeatedly until you get into the BIOS. Once in the BIOS you will need to locate boot disk priority. Set priority 1 to the laptop's main drive and priority 2 to the CD/DVD drive.
Now it should first try boot on your hard drive with your operating system on it. If after this you still get the unmountable boot volume error then your hard drive may be corrupt.

At boot up my Hitachi Hard drive clicks once. Not shown in BIOS


I am assuming that this is the hard drive in the computer. Try a safe boot up to see if you can get to the hard drive. use the F8 key at startup for safe mode.

MY DRIVE IS REGISTERING AS 57 GB NOT 80


please run [from command prompt] cd /D <drive letter> then chkdsk /r if asks to unmount say yes. most likely cause of misreading of size are bad sectors on disk. this win subprogram will try to fix any it will find. hope it helps.

Hard disk acess problem


Hi, What the message mean is that Windows can not read/understand the filing system (something like the Table of Contents in a book) and therefore do not which and where are your files in the 80Gb. A few things you can try: 1. Run Windows Scandisdk on the Hitachi 80Gb; 2. Run any third party disk check/utility such Norton Disk Doctor. Alternately, you can use a file recovery software (such as GetDataBack) to recover/copy all your important files from the 80Gb and transfer them to another mass storage device. Thereafter, you can re-partition and re-format the said Hitachi to start new/fresh/clean. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turnes up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
