Well, my friends laptop has died, after telling it to not reboot after fatal error I found it had the old UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME error.
Well, the the first thing I done was boot into the XP Install disk and try to get into recovery mode to run chkdsk, Etc. However, windows reported that there was no hard disk basically and wouldn't let me continue. The next thing I thought of was booting into a Live CD, i.e. Knoppix, but couldn't find the disk so I decided on trying a mandriva boot disk but it couldn't mount the disk either so now I'm waiting for Knoppix to download because that can mount dead HDD's.
Anyone got any ideas of how I can fix this whilst Knoppix is downloading?
