I have an advent laptop running windows 7. It is only four months old but I have now hit the UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME message displayed on a blue screen. The stop message at the bottom of the screen is
STOP: 0x000000ED (0x84AA7448, 0xC0000185, 0x00000000, 0x00000000
I think I have tried all the repair options available on the laptop but still cannot get anywhere. Please help.
Bug Check 0xED: UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME
This indicates that the I/O subsystem attempted to mount the boot volume and it failed.
Parameter 2 is the status code from the file system that describes why it failed to mount the volume
// MessageId: STATUS_IO_DEVICE_ERROR
// The I/O device reported an I/O error.
#define STATUS_IO_DEVICE_ERROR ((NTSTATUS)0xC0000185 L)
