Question about Toshiba Satellite 1415-S173 Notebook

1 Answer

Laptop will not boot

I have tried the F8 key and used the various options to no avail.
The message I get is: UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT-VOLUME

The Technical information:
*** STOP: 0X000000ED (0X81B7D6A0, 0XC000009C, 0X00000000, 0X00000000)

This does not make sense to me. Does it to anyone else? And if so what options do I have to correct this problem.

About 8 out of 10 times this error inicates a hard drive failure, let's hope this is the other 2. Start by doing a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. If the repair doesn't take, then reformat (NTFS) and reinstall the operating system. If you have any problems during or after reinstalling the new operating system, then the hard drive has failed and will need replaced.

UN MOUNTABLE BOOT VOLUME ERROR - BLUE SCREEN on a dell latitude D505 laptop

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.

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

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.

How do I fix or repair my HP mini 1000 Netbook with it being stuck in a boot loop? I am getting the "unmountable_boot_volume screen. My netbook does not have a CD ROM drive.


Check your bios to ensure its first boot option is set to the hard drive instead of CD drive or USB drive. If you have a thumb drive plugged in, unplug the USB and try again. On your boot screen there should be an option to hit a key to enter bios (Usually Esc, F2 or Del). Hit whichever key it requests and enter Bios. Once in Bios look for Boot Order and check to see where the Hard Drive is in the order. If it is not set to #1 then do as it says to set it to the first option. Once done hit F10 to save and Exit and return to boot.

Unmountable boot volume acer 3000 aspire


Unmountable boot volume is Hard Disk Partition lost.
There are two partition on hard disk, one is NTFS & FAT32, if this two partition are damage or lost, then you have lost your data also.
Reformat on it are the best way result and put new windows system.

You can recover your pictures after reformat by using a program RECOVERMYFILES, this program even when your windows system got reformatted can recover all of it.

Good luck!

Boot from CD does not work.


You should definately be given the choice to boot from cd, when you press F2 to get into the bios and go to boot options, what boot options do you have?

If you go into the bios you should have the choice to boot from ide (hard drive), cdrom, floppy disk, network (on some) and try other boot media.

Are you going into the boot option in the bios by pressing F2.
