I am having a boot problem. I get a BSOD (UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME) every time I try to boot. I have found plenty of help here and on other sites but here is my exisiting problem.

I can't use the downloadable boot floppies (6 floppy set) that contains the Recovery Console because my computer (IBM Thinkpad A31) doesn't have a floppy drive.

Is there a way to get those 6 disk images onto one CD?

Thanks for the reply, but I do not have the WinXP CD. The way that IBM shops their systems is with a recovery partition that is hidden during normal operation. If you need to access the "IBM Program Recovery" you can during startup.

They do not ship CD's with their systems (atleast not with mine!).

Oh, you have an install/recovery CD. I have OEM for W2K and it's a full program, just didn't get the books, box, etc... :)

I don't see why you couldn't burn the floppies to a CD, but it will need to be bootable.

Maybe som XP user has an idea how to do that...
