    i got a problem with my main computer. i am writing this massage from an other compuer
    yestarday i was playing on it and it was turned off directly without shuting down by mr brother.

    from that day after few hours i tried to go on the compure and when i started ut i get the massage "Unmountable_Boot_volume" and the computer goes to the usual blue error screen.

    this is the first time i have ever gotten this massage. and this time i do not know wat to do. i have gone to the microsoft website and asked for this and not found much info. just some info about the type of error massage during the first start up.


    i need to get the comp to work again.

    these are the details of the computer
    700 mhz
    xp pro
    sp2
    250 mb ram
    160 gb hard drive

    btw my computer's primary drive is the cd drive. and the secondary drive is the hard drive.

    when i start the computer i am not able to run it in safe mode or the repair mode

    try making you hd first in the boot list. If there isn't anything in the cd drive then there is nothing, thus unmountable boot volume, even if you had it that way before, try it.

    Also that blue screen is called the BSOD or BLUE SCREEN OF [bold]DEATH[/bold].

    i tried that but nothing

    still i get the same problem

    unmountable_boot_volume means that boot.exe was damaged when the comps power was shut off directly i got this when i did some research on google

    Looks like your boot sector ( the very first bit of your drive) has got corrupted.
    You can try copying it all onto your friends computer by attaching your harddisk in his PC ofcourse, then deleting all the partitions, and repartitionig the entire HD. Then format all your drives, and install your OS again.
    Obviously this process will take a hell a lot of time, but I don't know any other way to do it.
    If you want, before repartitioning, you can just try formatting the primary drive, and reinstalling your OS on it. But I don't suggest it, as if it dosen't work, you will be wasting a lot of time.
    It's your pick.
