My friend has a Dell Inspiron 6000 Laptop.

She recently recruited me to help her figure out why she's coming up with the following method:

Unmountable Boot Volume
0x000000ED (0x81334868, 0xc0000006, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)



__________
now i know that there have been multiple posts with this sort of problem, but i have yet to see someone conclude their threads with a "I fixed it!" or... "that was the solution i needed!"

i tried to dskchk /r.... it gets 39% done and tells me there are unrecoverable files
i tried to dskchk /p.... i get the same response

i didn't know if fixboot would erase some of the hard drive, which i'm not trying to do because i want her to have a chance of recovering some of the information off the hard drive. i was reading about cables and slaving the drive to another hard drive, but i don't know how to do that with a laptop or if that's even possible.

i'm still learning the ins-and-outs of my computer and whatnot. i'd hate to test my skills, or knowledge on someone elses stuff, you know?

are there any other suggestions for fixing my problem?
please let me know. thx:confused:

It means that the files or file system is badly damaged.

If CHKDSK does not repair the file structure, as indicated, then a fulll destructive reformat and reinstall would probably be needed.

But it could also indicate that the HDD itself has issues.

There is such a cable as you mentioned-one example is here....==about 20 bucks plus shipping.

It might give you a chance to recover some data before formatting (if the drive isn't already toast)...

This would also be a useful time to explain to your friend that unless she backs up her important data to a CD or DVD regularly, it will always be at risk.

Data that exists only on the HDD is data that you don't care about losing.
