    Start the computer to the Recovery Console, and then run Chkdsk /r

    Also grab a program to test your hard drive.

    9/10 it's the VIA IDE miniport driver which is causing problems...

    When I run Windows XP with the standard Microsoft-drivers, I never got any UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME problems

    Txh m8!
    It's true - I had installed Via IDE miniport. (this one is not included in the newest VIaPack), So I'll uninstall it and a install standard IDE drv form VP.
    Thx once again!

    yeah most VIA drivers suck besides their AGP drivers, other than those i have had nothing but problems with their 4in1s.
