See the info in the links below but you should be able to do it from the Recovery Console..:
STOP 0x000000ED UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME" Error Message When You Restart Your Computer or Upgrade to Windows XP
Unmountable Boot Volume" Win XP
This error can also occur when the hard drive is just beginning to go bad..I would certainly start by following the instructions in the links above.
Hope this helps.
Well, another problem with my 4 year old Samsung Sens P10 notebook. I am running Windows XP SP2.
I had a hard disk failure about 1 year ago, and have a warrantee on the HD, but, my back-ups are also gone for the disk .. so, I REALLY need to get the notebook up and running again. Being in Thailand doesn't help either, since the usual solution by Thai techs is to re-intall Windows ...
I always P2P my 2 notebooks with the Samsung being the master and the other notebook being the ''slave'' with a single LAN cable sharing one internet connection.
Everything was basically fine, altho the Samsung gives me errors often, but the problems go away .. not this time
After I left for Japan, my staff went to boot up the Samsung notebook after it was disconnected from the HP notebook (which I took with me to Japan) and they got the same problem over and over.
It will begin to boot up, and then get to the WINDOWS screen and after 1 min or so,it displays and error screen so quickly it is impossible to read, and then goes back to the initial BIOS boot up and RAM check screen .. and will recycle for hours and hours this way. Even when I try to boot up with Safe Mode or debugging mode, nothing happens .. it just cycles over and over.
I finally was able to grab a blue error msg screen and received the message of ''Unmountable_Boot_Volume''.
What is wrong, and how can I recover the data on this disk if it is indeed not bootable?
Thanks in advance!!!
