I could sure use someone's help with this one!
My computer got whacked pretty hard with viruses, trojans, you name it, so I tried to run a Windows Repair on my 500GB SATA Hard Drive, connected to the onboard SATA port on my MSI main board. The repair ran completely through, then when Windows rebooted following the installation, I got "Unmountable Boot Volume". I tried everything I've read....chkdsk /r, chkdsk /p, fixboot, fixmbr.....nothing changed.
I finally got so desperate that I went out and bought a brand new Seagate 500GB hard drive, and ran a fresh new XP installation.....and I still have the same problem...installation ran fine all the way through....XP reboots to start up for the first time, and whammo! Here's Unmountable Boot Volume again! Nothing fixes it!
Any suggestions would be REALLY appreciated....should I try to upgrade the BIOS? Do virus whack that.
By the way, I installed XP on a 80GB IDE DRive I have, connected to same board, and it works fine!!
