Unmountable Boot Volume" Win XP

When booting up to Win XP you may get a error that reads "Unmountable Boot Volume" This is probably because your boot.ini file is messed up

You can boot to the XP cd and when you see the Welcome to setup press the letter R

You will get a dos prompt

Then type "chkdsk /p" without the quotes and hit enter

When that is done type "fixboot" and hit enter

"Y" and enter at the prompt

Then type "exit" and hit enter

The system will now reboot into Windows

If for some reason that don't work for you, you can boot to the recovery console like above and...

Type "chkdsk /r" then enter

When done type "exit" and hit enter.

This will take longer, but the system should boot back into Windows.

If that does'nt the following web site might work:
