My power cable to my IBM system-unit was interrupted! When it booted
again, it was showing the following error message:

UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME

*** STOP: 0x000000ED (0X80E32CC0, 0XC0000032, 0X00000000, 0X000000000)

I've tried to install the hard drive, in another machine! Well, the
machine could detect it and all its content! I've tried to restore it to
default settings! I've tried to boot from an xp bootable disc! I've tried
to to restore it to a state prior to the problem! All in vain! The same
message could show up! Please, help me out!

Note that the error message is in the following form:

STOP 0x000000ED (0xaaaaaaaa, 0xbbbbbbbb, 0xcccccccc, 0xdddddddd)

The aaaaaaaa, bbbbbbbb, cccccccc, and dddddddd represent hexadecimal
numbers that may vary, however if the second parameter (0xbbbbbbbb) is
0xC0000032, that indicates the file system is damaged.

To repair this, you might be able to start the Recovery Console and use the
chkdsk /r command to repair the volume.

To do this, use the following steps:

1. Boot from the Windows installation CD.

2. At the "Welcome to Setup" screen, press R to select the repair option.

3. If you have a multi-boot setup, select the Windows installation that you
want to repair from the Recovery Console.

4. Type the administrator password when prompted. If no administrator
password exists, just press ENTER at the prompt.

5. At the command prompt type "chkdsk /r" and press ENTER.

6. At the next command prompt type "exit" and press ENTER, the system
should restart.

If the error reoccurs upon restarting, then repeat the procedure replacing
step 5 with the following:

5. At the command prompt type "fixmbr" and press ENTER, then type "fixboot"
and press ENTER.

If the error still remains, then reinstall Windows from scratch.

Hint: If you don't have a recent backup of any data on the drive before
reinstalling Windows you could try installing the drive as a secondary
drive in another system, where you might be able to see and then copy the
desired files.

Let me know how it all works out in the end, Scott.
