Guys - i also need help with "unmountable boot volume" BUT on top of this problem i get blank (black) screen. When i turn off-and then ON the monitor i see computer trying to launch Windows, and then stops at the blue screen window. The image flashes for a split of a second and then the screen goes blank. If i repeat turning off-on the monitor, the words on the screen flash again, and the story repeats. Therefore it it very challenging to figure when to press R or anything else. When the problem 1st happened i was just getting the blue screen with the message "unmountable boot volume". I paid $75 to buy XP Home Edition disk, since my home Dell came without it. Hope somebody can help. I mostly use Mac, and this is my home computer for misc. stuff. Thanks!

it's a damaged file system case to resolve this follow the steps :-

1.Insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.

Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted.

2.When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.

3.If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console.
