Not sure if this is the right place in the forum for this or even if you all help with this sort of stuff. I have had great results with other problems so thought I'd try here. I am having an Unmountable_Boot_Volume error which developed today. I get the blue screen of death and cannot boot to windows, even in safe mode. I have been reading up on this issue and have been able to get to the windows recovery console. I run "fixboot" which says my boot sector was corrupt and is now fixed. I tried to run "fixmbr" but got some message saying to be real careful to using this command so I backed out. I also ran "chkdsk /r" but could only get to 25% complete (tried 3 times and waited very long before shutting down and trying again). Not sure what else to do. I could re-install windows on this HD but would lose some data I would prefer not to lose. I am considering purchasing another HD, installing it as main HD, loading windows, and then slaving the current HD to it and grabbing the data off it that I want. Would this work? I am running XP home on a Dell Dimesion 8250 series wiht a 2.66 gig P4 processor and 512MB RDRAM. All was working fine until and this morning. Thinking maybe the HD is going out. Any suggestions would be appreciated. AK-Man
