Unmountable Boot Volume

This question is not answered

I have a blue screen with an error message "unmountable boot volume". I had this same thing happen about 4 months ago. It was fixed by using an DOS command (Chkd....). Could you tell me how to resolve this problem by using this command. Would you have to change the boot sequence in the system setup and if so how would you do that. Do you have to boot from a CD and would that be the OS CD? Need to explain in simple detail how this problem can be resolved. Thanks!

  • When you keep getting this message, that means your hard drive is going bad. Run a diagnostics on it.

     

    You also need to tell us which OS you are running.

    Precision M6300 - Windows 7 / Ubuntu 12.04

    See if the solution HERE can help.

    A Hint:  Read the third paragraph first.

    It helps to include the computer model and version of windows, when posting.
