I have a Dell Dimension 4400 and a BSOD came up saying UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME. My computer wouldn't start up in any mode and I lost my boot cd a long time ago. Is there any way to fix up my computer?

I'm using Windows XP Home Edition.


Thank you

When you start Windows XP, you may receive the following error message:
STOP 0x000000ED (0xaaaaaaaa,0xbbbbbbbb,0xcccccccc,0xdddddddd) UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME


Note In this error message, aaaaaaaa, bbbbbbbb, cccccccc, and dddddddd are hexadecimal numbers that may vary.

CAUSE
This behavior can occur if the file system is damaged and cannot be mounted.

Damaged File System
If the second parameter (0xbbbbbbbb) of the Stop error is 0xC0000032, the file system is damaged.

If this is the case, restart the computer to the Recovery Console, and then use the chkdsk /r command to repair the volume. After you repair the volume, check your hardware to isolate the cause of the file system damage.

To do this, follow these steps:
1. Start your computer by using the Windows startup disks, or with the Windows installation disk if your computer can start from the CD drive.
2. When the Welcome to Setup screen appears, press R to select the repair option.
3. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the Windows installation that you want to access from the Recovery Console.
4. Type the administrator password when you are prompted to do this.

Note If no administrator password exists, press ENTER.
5. At the command prompt, on the drive where Windows is installed, type chkdsk /r, and then press ENTER.
6. At the command prompt, type exit, and then press ENTER to restart your computer.
If this procedure does not work, repeat it and use the fixboot command in step 5 instead of the chkdsk /r command.

You will need a regular windows XP cd for this.

I dont have a Windows XP disc...

All I got is a Recovery Console file that I just got and it says there is a special you need to burn it to for a cd...

It says I got to use ISO Recorder, but when I click Copy to a Disc it says "No Recorder Selected" and there is no help what so ever on the site.

In order for ISO burner to work you need to have a CD-RW drive installed on your computer. Do you have a cd burner in your computer? If so you need to select that drive for the burn.

Did you read the tutorial for Iso Recorder?

http://isorecorder.a...n.com/HowTo.htm

What you need to do is go thru windows explore(Start, right click my computer, then click explore)and find the RC.iso.
To create a CD with ISO Recorder right-click on the RC.iso and select "Copy Image to CD"
