UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME STOP 0x000000ED ****Can't fix***** RRS feed

  • Question

  • So I have a Dell Latitude X1, with Windows XP (Pro I think)

    After turning it on, it gave me the BSOD with  the Unmountable Boot Volume problem. *sigh* I've tried to load XP in normal, safe, last functioning one, etc.... but none of them work.

    I don't know where my original XP CD is, and my netbook doesn't have a CD drive. :/

    I've loaded into BIOS, but don't know where to enter the chkdsk function.

    I'm starting to think that my hard drive is gone to a better place, please don't tell me so... :'(

     

    The Error message: STOP:  0x000000ED (0x83FCEC08, 0xC000009C, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

     

    I'd certainly appreciate some help and advice! Thanks in advance.

  • you cant run chkdsk option unless you can boot from a WINxp cd and choose to repair the OS. check the BIOS to see if your netbook supports USB boot option.if it does, then u need to get an external CD/DVD drive. i think your hard disk is still in order,at worst...a clean OS install will do the trick

  • Lame.

    Although I will open 'er up and see if there are any loose connections, before I start buying CD drives and XP copies...

    Thanks for the help. I sure hope my data is intact. :/
