  1. I solved a similar problem with one of my computers, but the computer that I use almost all of the time is not working. When I turn it on, it gives me the choices to start in Safe Mode or start normally. When I go with either choice, it flashes with the blue screen of death, then disappears, and it restarts itself and goes through the same process. This is the error that comes up on the screen:

    STOP: 0x000000ED

    UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME


    I do not have my recovery CD that I need. Is there a way to download a recovery method that does not make me lose all of my information on my C drive?

    If you have a solution or any ideas on what to do to solve this problem, please let me know as soon as possible.

    Thank you,
    Keichi

    The Aprropriate Methods are based on your issue:

    IF...

    UDMA Controller
    If your computer uses a UDMA hard disk controller, use the following procedures: • Replace the 40-wire cable with an 80-wire UDMA cable.

    • In the BIOS settings for your computer, load the 'Fail-Safe' default settings, and then reactivate the most frequently used options such as USB Support.


    * I would see if your cabels are correct. Go simp[lest first then check your BIOS


    If...

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

    If this is the case, restart the computer to the Recovery Console, and then use the chkdsk /r command to repair the volume. After you repair the volume, check your hardware to isolate the cause of the file system damage.

    To do this, use the following steps: 1. Start your computer with the Windows startup disks, or with the Windows CD-ROM if your computer can start from the CD-ROM drive.
    2. When the Welcome to Setup screen appears, press R to select the repair option.
    3. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the Windows installation that you want to access from the Recovery Console.
    4. Type the administrator password when you are prompted to do so.

    NOTE: If no administrator password exists, press ENTER.
    5. At the command prompt, on the drive where Windows is installed, type chkdsk /r, and then press ENTER.
    6. At the command prompt, type exit, and then press ENTER to restart your computer.For additional information about how to use the Recovery Console in Windows XP, click the article number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

    If this procedure does not work, repeat it and use the fixboot command in step 5 instead of the chkdsk /r command
