Question about Dell Inspiron Mini 10 Notebook

1 Answer

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 a cd drive. I have no idea the correct course of action to fix it that doesnt involve spending a lot of money.

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


If you are seeing 'unmountable boot volume' when booting your laptop / notebook, then this would suggest that the internal disk drive has become corrupted or perhaps has failed. I would recommend downloading a copy of Hiren's Boot CD from http://www.hirensbootcd.org/ - this is a CD image file (.ISO) and needs to be burnt on to a blank CD disc.Boot from Hiren's CD and select DOS programs which will give you access to a selection of Disk tools including HDAT2 which can be used to test and repair bad sectors on the internal disk drive. There are also utilities which can read the SMART data from the drive and give an indication of any problems it may have encountered.

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.

An UNMOUNTABLE BOOT VOLUME is a failure to read the operating system. You will need to boot to an XP CD via external Optical Drive and run CHKDSK /R to try to the resolve the error.

It is possible that the HDD or Solid State Drive (SSD) is failing and will need replacement.
