I am having a problem with a gateway desktop hard drive. I get a Stop 0x000000ED error UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME on Windows XP boot.

I did a chkdsk /r from the Windows Recovery CD. I still couldn't boot although the chkdsk completed.

I put the hard drive in another computer with a good OS. I booted that and tried to access the new partition so I can pull the data I need off it. Seems to have no file system associated with the partition. I get an error: H:\ is not accessible. The parameter is not correct.

I looked at the Windows Disk Management and it says there is no file system. Is there any advice I can follow to access the drive at this point? or is it wiped out?

If there is no file system can a check disk complete????

Hi and welcome. Sounds like the hard drive may have totally crashed :(

Are the operating systems the same on both computers?

As a side note, I was just going to email you regarding your user photo. That's fine for your avatar, but, the photo must be of you ;)

I was able to resolve the problem. EasyRecovery was recommended to me and it was the only tool that would access the bad partition. I'll change my pic. Mahalo.
