    Hey guys, i've got a lovely blue screen on my PC now. The message reades "UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME. So i changed the BIOS to boot from the cd-rom with the XP cd i got from Dell. This started ok but after it says "checking system config" it takes me to another error screen. the error is \i386\biosinfo.inf not found. the error code is 47872. I've been racking my brain for a day now on how to fix this. Any suggestions?

    Any symptoms of a problem before the "unmountable" error?

    Can you enter the Recovery Console with that CD and run chkdsk /r?
