Unmountable Boot Volume?!



Hey guys. I've got a problem in loading Win XP. Whenever I boot, it gives me the BSOD and says something about 'Unmountable Boot Volume'. Understandably, I'm gonna be unable to boot from my C: but is there anyway to 'rescue' it? I'm praying hard that I don't have to format my C: partition 'cos I've got my final year project on it and I definitely won't have time to re-do it all over again. Any and all assistance will be greatly appreciated. System specs are as follows:

- 2.0 GHz P4
- 100 GB HDD (Partitioned into 68.7 and 24.9 GB partitions)
- Windows XP Professional OEM
- nVidia GeForce3 Ti200 64MB DDR
- 512 MB PC800 RDRAM
- Turtle Beach Santa Cruz

Boot from the CD to the Recovery Console

Type: chkdsk /r (and wait FOREVER)
Type: fixboot
Type: exit


Hipster forgot one thing....

Once you get back into your drive back up your important stuff like your final year project Hard drives always die at the worst time.

I had the same problem a year ago and I did the above and the problem went away.


Yeah... it solved the problem, but whenever I try to log-in to Windows, I get another BSOD. :( *sux*

But nevermind, I've done a Safe Mode and backed up my stuff. Wiped out WinXp and done a clean install. Thanks to all for assistance!
