So, my computer crashed recently, and I got a blue screen. It said 'Unmountable Boot Volume', so I went to Google on another computer, and it told me to fix it using the XP disk, and have the disk repair the problem. But I don't have said disk, so I downloaded the rc.iso and put it on a blank CD, then put it in the computer and booted. It didn't work right away, so I went to the BIOS and told it to boot from CD first. So I tried again...this time, it started to work, and it started loading a bunch of processes...but when it's about to finish, it goes to ANOTHER blue screen. :) Help?

Welcome to Geeks to Go!

Sounds like a hardware issue. Please remove any external hardware except for the keyboard, and try to do XP repair again, as you said above.

Run hard drive diagnostics.
Go here: http://www.seagate.c...ols/seatooldreg
Download the ISO-CD ROM IMAGE EN Graphical file.
Then burn the file to a CD using BurnCDCC: http://www.terabyteu...ee-software.htm
Boot from the CD, and run a long diagnostic test on your hard drive.
Here is a tutorial: http://seagate.custk...sp?DocId=201271

Give us the results of this test once it completes.

Also try DragonMaster Jay's suggestion.

I don't. But Seatools will work with and diagnose any IDE/SATA drive.

Certain hard drives need certain tools.

Worth reading, IMO.

I read the page of diagnostics. It is true that some hard drives are diagnosed best with the program from the same manufacturer.

To Volt...
Use the diagnostic program from your HDD manufacturer; the steps for running that diagnostic program should be like the directions to burn and run Seatools. If you can't find the make of your HDD, or your manufacturer doesn't provide a diagnostic utility, then try using Seatools.
