    On my HP Pavilion zd7000 running xp home on boot up at the ...system32\drivers\agp440.sys boot up line when starting in Safe Mode it jumps to a blue screen that says "unmountable_boot_volume". It asks me to disable/remove newly installed hardware/software... there is none, but can't get to software, anyway. The machine won't boot past this point... any suggestions?

    Technical info:

    Your hard drive may have failed . . you can download diagnostics from HP support to rule that out

    DO you have a UDMA hard drive ?
    Untill I know that try this.

    Run chkdsk /r using the recovery console.
    If that doesnt work run fixboot [drive] under the recovery console.

    Please note im assuming you know how get to the recovery console, if not just say so for step by step instructions.

    From the Setup CD-ROM

    Insert the Setup compact disc (CD) and restart the computer. If prompted, select any options required to boot from the CD.
    When the text-based part of Setup begins, follow the prompts; choose the repair or recover option by pressing R. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot system, choose the installation that you need to access from the Recovery Console. When prompted, type the Administrator password. At the system prompt, type Recovery Console commands; type help for a list of commands, or help commandname for help on a specific command.
