Yesterday in the morning i was going to burn a cd with some podcasts that i hear on my car in my way to work, when the pc was booting i face it: the scary BSOD with the message "UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME".
Why me?, i started to think about what i have done to this occur, i checked my IDE cables, boot again and again (safe mode, last known... bla, bla) hoping to fix it alone but nothing works, so before kicking the pc or format it , i tried booting with a win XP cd and in the recovery console (pressing "R", then choosing "c:/windows", and finally entering the administrator password) i typed this:
1. chksdsk /r [enter] --> it takes a long time
2. chksdsk /p [enter]
3. fixboot c: [enter] -->if c: is where windows is installed
4. exit ->to reboot again
And it works, i got xp back again :P.
