    Good morning my friends,

    Trying to repair a PC for a friend but have come up against the above number?

    Unmountable boot volume. 0x0000032

    I have tried taking all the components out and resating them, tried inserting the XP Pro disk for a repair, but it still wont get past the blue screen, if anybody has any advice it would be muchly recieved.

    Many thanks

    Hi!

    So you can't get to the recovery console? If you can, first run chkdsk /r, if it doesn't correct it try the fixmbr and fixboot commands.:)

    It will probably help to change the boot sequence in BIOS so that it boots from the CD-ROM first.

    If the BIOS is configured correctly and you can't even get to the recovery console from the CD, you don't have much of a choice except to replace the drive.

    If you have an F12 boot menu with IDE options, try that also.

    To recover data you would either need to try booting the drive as a slave on another NTFS system, or try reading it through an IDE to USB drive converter -- or possibly create a boot disk which run the OS in ram as a 'virtual drive' >>
