Windows To Go Unmountable Boot Drive Error RRS feed

  • Question

  • I successfully created Windows To Go on a USB Flash drive.  I used it without a problem both on newer hardware running Windows 7 and on older hardware running XP SP3.  Tried to bring it up on HP Vista based system and I received a blue screen telling me I have an unmountable boot drive, then the system restarted after a few seconds.  The computer in question is an HP Pavillion m9252p that booted from Vista after I took the flash drive out.  When I brought the flash drive back home, it worked on my systems here again with no problem.  Any ideas why it won't work on the HP Vista PC?

  • It seems that your hard drive driver, may be SATA driver, is not compatible with Windows 8. Try to upgrade the BIOS and the driver then see if it helps.

  • I updated the BIOS and all drivers, and I still get the 'UNMOUNTABLE BOOT VOLUME' error.
