How to fix UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME (0x000000ED) on my Windows XP DELL laptop?
I have a computer that I need to do a installation repair on. It's running a SATA drive and have tried everything:
- slipstream XP using
nliteto include the SATA drivers
chkdsk /rto try to fix any disk errors (just freezes @ 50%)
The problem with the computer is winxp won't boot, not even in safemode. It just restarts. I froze the error and got:
stop: 0x000000ED (0x8a635590,0xc0000009c,0x00000000,0x00000000)
When I go to try to do the repair using the Windows XP CD, I click enter to view partitions, then I am supposed to see an option to choose 'R' for repair which will reinstall the Windows installation but keep documents and settings and applications. But no option is available and the partition just says
Can anyone give me some advice or tips? I'm running out of ideas.
