Unmountable boot volume

what the **** is this??

i get it ever few days or so as it boots just as XP is reaching the loading splash screen !

its a blue screen everything freezes!!!

the only way i seem to get rid of it is by putting in windows 2000 pro CD let it copy setup files to the hard drive and then reboot then windows XP runs CHECK DISK and sorts it out!

please help!

thanks,

Alex

Next time that happens, put in your windows XP cd, run the recovery console

once at the console type in fixMBR, then after it writes a new MBR, type in Fixboot and let it write a new bootsector, that should fix it :)

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
