On a term server at work when booted up it gets the following error message:

Stop Unmountable_boot_volume

0x000000ED (0x86741830, 0xC000009C, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

What do I need to do to fix it?

You have a damaged File System. To repair this problem, you need to access the recovery console to do this:

1. Start your computer with the Windows startup disks, or with the Windows CD-ROM if your computer can start from the CD-ROM 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 so.

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.


Note: If you do not have a windows xp disk, download the following file: rc.iso

Now, go to Alex Feinman 's website and download the Isorecorder power toy. Install it on a working machine and reboot. Place a blank cd in your cd-burner and then right click rc.iso, and choose burn to cd from the context menu. You can use any cd burning program that supports ISO burning, but each is different and I cannot necessarily direct you on how each program works.

Place this cd in the non-working computer and reboot. You should boot to recovery console. If you do not, you need to set your cd-rom as the first boot device in your PCs BIOS.

Amen! In fact I see it at least 6 times a week at work. Good old chkdsk /r works just about everytime.
