    I keep getting a message stating that there is a inmountable_Boot_volume when trying to install Windows Vista. It happens if I am installing over xp or if I try to install on a new partition. I could use help to understand what it is telling me.

    Hi there,

    Unmountable I take it you mean?

    Can you tell us exactly what stage this is happening at, as it can be a number of things. Bad hardware, bad boot.ini...

    At what part of the install is it appearing?

    Thanks for your reply,
    Yes I do mean unmontable_boot_volume. It This happens with the first reboot of the install. after the files are expanding. It sits with the bar moving across the screen and then a blue screen comes up with the message. The computer I am installing it on is one I built myself. It has a AMD Athlon (tm) 64 processor..3800+ It has 1.50 gig of ram, a 160 Gig western WD hard drive. The mother board is a MSI K9NU Neo Nvidia M1697. I am also running a Nvidia 7300 GS PCIe Graphics card. I have a board based auto card - Realtek High Definition. Hope this helps. thanks
