I have a Dell Dimension E310 with Windows XP. Windows will not boot and gives the unmountable boot volume error message. Will not start in safe mode. Booted from the reinstallation CD, went into the recovery console. chkdsk/r doesn't work, however chkdsk does. Started "chkdsk is checking the volume" and "chkdsk is performing additional checking or recovery." First try froze at 27%, waited awhile, restarted, tried again. Second try, again stopped at 27%, this time gave a message of "the volume appears to contain one or more unrecoverable problem." Restarted again, third try, completed and gave the following info:
chkdsk found one or more errors on the volume.
73208204 kilobytes total disk space
36736160 kilobytes are available
4096 bytes in each allocation unit
18302051 total allocation units on disk
9184040 allocation units available on disk
What do I do next? How can I find out what the errors are and if they are repairable?
Thanks in advance.
