    So I know a little bit about computers, my friend said his computer was slow starting up so I offered to help,
    start/run, msconfig, all I did was disable some basic startup programs like quicktime, itunes, msn, etc,
    restart the computer tap F8 open safe mode,
    and bam i get the BSOD 0x000000ED UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME.

    My heart sank and I was afraid to tell me friend, In the end he let me take it home to fix it, I'm STUCK and need help ASAP, its running windows vista (business)? not too sure,
    anyways I booted from a vista CD to do the repair, but when it gives me the option to select partition? or OS? theres nothing there, so i cant select them to repair the computer to a previous time, I also tried using the cmdprompt to do chkdsk /f /r but that doesnt work (forgot what it says, ill take a look again sometime soon).
    So now I'm pretty much out of idea's and screwed if i don't get it fixed, PLEASE anyone help, my only other idea i have right now is i think the vista cd i used was home, would i need a business vista cd to try the repair?
    thankyou!

    It's a hard drive issue and it sounds like it is not even being seen if you cannot run chkdsk /r

    If you open the BIOS settings do you see it detected there? What if you try an auto-detect?

    You might try reseating the cables for the drive and retest. But it sounds like it is going to have to be replaced.

    If the drive is being seen and you can get to the bootrec.exe command line, try "fixboot" and "fixmbr" >>

    Yes I will try that, but I think the hard drive is being seen because after the BIOS screen you can select to start windows
    normally and it goes to the windows loading screen then after that the BSOD comes up, so that means it can see the harddrive?

    Yes it should.

    Give the fixboot and fixmbr repairs a shot.

    If you have tried chkdsk -- report on any error messages; the whole issue from the "slow booting" sounds like a drive corruption or cabling issue.
