My girlfriends hard drive keeps saying "Unmountable Bootdrive"

Now i have taken out the drive and reconnected it. I have also run the fixboot command and also run chkdsk/ r

It works for a few days and then fails again.

If i bought her a new hard drive, would it be worth my while copying an image of her current drive onto the new one?

Or is this a waste of time as maybe its her system files that are corrupt and thats why she gets the error message?

Neither she or i have a XP CD to run a repair

Well imaging the existing drive to restore on to the new one seems a good idea to me - you've nothing to lose. if the image method still gives you trouble then you'll need to buy a copy of xp.
