  1. I'll try to make this short and sweet. Windows XP Home SP2 installed. Will not boot. BSOD...unmountable boot volume. Will detect cd rom, will not read XP (or any other) cd. Bios configured multiple ways as well as cables. Nothing. Any suggestions appreciated.
    ...Did I mention I do not have a floppy drive :)

    Does your CD drive work while in windows? I'd think it is a problem with your hardware somewhere along the lines that is giving you that problem. Try using a different CD/DVD player.

    It used to, I cannot get into Windows in any mode now of course. I have two drives enabled and both say "strike F1 to retry boot, F2 for setup utility"

    And THX
