I started on the boot CD after changing the order in the BIOS.  Run the test fast and got this error:

Any suggestions on what to do next?

First, store the boot CD.

    If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer.  If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

    None of the books on the computer repair tell me how to solve this problem.

    Please, please help.

    Although it is a Windows XP installation CD, should NOT be used either of the functions of the Installation. You will use the Recovery Console to run a program to check the structure of files on the hard drive and fix it if necessary. There is VERY little chance of what either being deleted! And you'll still have SP3 when all is said and done. :-)

    That being said, it is important to ensure that everything is always stored safely.

    something about the control bug 0xED is here: (v = VS. 85) .aspx

    (Which indicates that the IO subsystem attempted to mount the boot volume and it failed)

    So, if you have not the administrator password, only you can do - disassemble the HARD drive of your laptop, insert it into another computer and run the CHKDSK command from the command prompt:

    where x: is the HARD drive volume

    Hi there SQUAWKERTWO,

    0x000000ED and UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME means that your hard drive starts to do not (or has not) - I understand your financial situation (as I was once unemployed two years) but unfortunately I can't recommend you don't use your system for awhile until you can save up enough money for a computer technician to clone your entire hard drive to a new. If you continue to try to use your system, this means your hard drive can completely fail, then your only chance to recover personal files would be done by a specialist in data recovery - and they are very rarely affordable.

    If you are not real tied to the current installation of Windows - then a cloth and then reinstall are the best way to see if you can fix this

    Here's a suggestion on how to do a 'clean ': install
    For testing purposes, it is best to install Windows "clean".
    It is, basically, install the way that Microsoft intended (with the drivers from Windows Update).
    This procedure is for Windows 7, Vista is similar (but has 2 service packs)

    You will need your installation/recovery DVD (s) before you start.  Once you wipe the hard drive, there is no going back!

    1 back up all your data.
    It will wipe everything off of your hard drive, so what you want to keep should be backed up elsewhere.

    NOTE: If this is due to an infection, remember to analyze the data with current antivirus to another system to locate and remove malware.

    2. connect the system to the internet (if the system shows then disconnect from the Internet, do).

    3. use one of these free utilities to wipe the hard drive:
    DBAN ( )
    KillDisk ( ).
    This will also remove the system recovery partitions - so the installation/restore DVD is essential!

    4 install Windows by booting from the installation/recovery DVD - DO NOT change any settings!

    5 visit Windows Update and get all updates

    6. check device for all unknown/disabled devices Manager - if there are unknown disabled devices, secure them with the latest drivers from the website of the manufacturer of the device (not the PC manufacturer)

    7 visit Windows Update and download the Service Pack 1 (normally under important updates).  Read these notes for installing SP1:

    8 visit Windows Update and get any other available updates

    9 download, install and update a free antivirus, so it does not get infected during the test ( ).

    If problems persist, then the problem is probably with your hardware.

    Warning: If you have an Asus motherboard, check the date on the file C:\Windows\System32\driver\ASACPI.sys.  2004/2005 is a problem, 2009,2010 is OK.  Updates are available on the Web from Asus site.

    Warning: If you have a Sony system, make sure that you do NOT have the 2007 version (or earlier) Extension of Firmware of Sony Analyzer (SFEP.sys).  To update this driver immediately!

  • STOP: 0X000000ED (0X86D5C030, 0XC0000006, 0X00000000, 0X00000000)

    My niece has a netbook that it turns off in the middle of the Windows form with the flag and the blue line "forced" down while he was starting the system.  Now, he's not going beyond the start menu.  I tried every method of starting, including disable restart auto and other suggestions.  I posted the error code when we finally got a blue screen with an error code itself.  It doesn't have a hard drive to boot from the CD.  I don't have an external CD/DVD drive to boot to leave or perform a recovery.  It is not any kind of recovery.

    Any suggestions?  It is running XP.  Only screens I could get are the BIOS Boot Menu screens and the blue screen with the error. During some of these different methods of starting, he works through things page as it is starting, but then freezes.

    Thanks for any help!

    Safe mode will not help you.

    You can usually fix this by running chkdsk/r of the XP Recovery Console, but to do this, you will have to start on something.

    See here:

    If you use a recovery partition, you will eliminate all you have.

    Before the recovery operation (if it works at all), you could save all your personal data, but this will require that you copy off to an external device somewhere (but you cannot start, right?).

    You can buy an external CD/DVD drive for about $40 or less (this can be a good investment).

    You can take the machine to a shop where they attach an external CD/DVD drive and run chkdsk/r for you.  When you leave, everything will probably be mysterious excuses and you do not have an external CD/DVD drive.

    You can remove the drive and it slave in another machine and chkdsk /r on (too complicated).

    You could make a bootable USB drive with XP on it - Recovery Console if your system supports (too complicated).

    If you have no real XP bootable installation CD, you can create a bootable XP Recovery CD of Console and be on your way... but you have to start on something.

    Bite the bullet.  Stop messing around.  Shop for an external CD/DVD drive, your problem and be on your way.  Then you will have an external CD/DVD drive to use on any machine you want in the future.

    Then, train your staff on the ramifications of eating off the system when it is not the right time to power off.

    I doubt that last good Configuration know you will help (this is not what it is for) and if you say that you can not boot mode safe (of course), none of these other "methods" will help you to either - this isn't the problem.

    What a pity that it knows absolutely nothing about your system.  This is because the MS Answers forum does not prompt for any information system when a new question is asked.  Not knowing the basic information a problem prolongs the frustration and the agony of these issues.

    You need to boot your PC in the Recovery Console.

    See one of these documents to do that with your Windows XP CD: (see Option 2) GOLD

    Once you are in the recovery at the command prompt Console, type:

    CHKDSK c: /r

    Break-in. Allow chkdsk to fix the volume.

    Once reboot your PC by typing:


    Break-in. See if it works now.
