    Default No-Boot and Warning Screen

    An acquaintance asked me to look at her computer as she could not get it to boot. The XP Boot screen comes up with the Safe Mode, Last Good Settings, Normal Mode, etc choices. No matter which choice is made, the the XP startup screen appears for a sec or two, then the blue screen appears with the following:

    Unmountable_boot_volume and this STOP code:
    OX000000ED
    (OX84FE6AF8, QXC0000032, OX00000000, OX00000000)

    She said her cat had chewed through the keyboard cord and she respliced the cable. I tried both a PS2 and a USB keyboard, no difference.
    I originally built this unit and it has a 40 gb Maxtor, ASUS CD-RW, ASUS CD-Rom, 512 mb RAM, on an ASUS P4 Eliminator chassis/mobo ( the mini rig), 2.0A gb P4. Anyone familiar with the STOP code I am seeing?

    "STOP 0x000000ED UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME" Error Message When You Restart Your Computer or Upgrade to Windows XP

    STOP 0x000000ED (0xaaaaaaaa,0xbbbbbbbb,0xcccccccc,0xdddddddd) UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME

    If the second parameter (0xbbbbbbbb) of the Stop error is 0xC0000032, then the file system is damaged.

    your error...

    Unmountable_boot_volume and this STOP code:

    Thanks Steam. Yep is was a bad file that locked up the hard drive. I fixed it from the recovery console. If anyone has this problem, I would share the fix.
