    This is what Microsoft says about your error message.

    (Click to consult the online Win XP Resource Kit article.)
    The kernel mode I/O subsystem attempted to mount the boot volume and it failed. This error also might occur during an upgrade to Win XP on systems that use higher throughput ATA disks or controllers with incorrect cabling. In some cases, your system might appear to work normally after you restart.

    You can find a full explanation of windows error messages HERE just scroll down to your error message and read the instructions.

    Regards Howard :D

    Not knowing your rig, have you tried an 80-wire IDE flatcable rather than the 40-wire?

    Are you overclocking any components?

    It would be easier to shoot troubles if you'd fill your computer profile.

    SATA hdd, by any chance?
