I just went to turn on my Lenovo Laptop with Windows 7 and I got a blue screen that said "unmountable boot volume error".

I tried to run the start up fix and it doesn't work.

Any ideas on how to fix this?

I just checked with Best Buy and I have a warranty for a Hard drive problem.

do you mean you booted from the Windows 7 System Repair Disc...
if so do so again but this time select command prompt...
at the prompt type in chkdsk /r and press enter
let in run undisturbed until it completes...it may appear to hang at a certain % for a hour or so...
it may also back up and go over area again...let it run

I can't get on to the repair disk. It goes to windows start up repair or if you skip that it trys to start then the blue screen comes up.

you need to set the bios to boot from the cd first...then the hard drive that way it will boot from the repair disk

I couldn't figure out how to change the bios.

There was no option on the menu like I had seen online.

on some systems as soon as you turn on the power there will be the key combination you need to press on the screen...usually in the lower corner...the settings one will take you to the bios and the other is the boot order...if yours has that option select it and set the cd drive to the first boot device with the hard drive second
