    This from TeckTips4U

    "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 with your the XP CD and when you see the "Welcome to setup" screen press the letter R
    You will get a dos-type prompt
    Then type chkdsk /p (note the space before /p)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 (note the space before /r) then enter
    When done type "exit" and hit enter.
    This will take longer, but the system should boot back into Windows."

    many thanks Claymore, tried that method but even after i changed the boot sequence to "CDROM.A.C" I cant get to the cd set up page. Even tried safe mode and still get to the blue screen. looks like a trip to the shop:(
