This weekend, after no new changes windows wouldn't reboot. unmountable system volume or something to that effect. At that point, I couldn't get into safe mode, last known good config, etc.,.

After playing with it for a while, it finally rebooted in last know good config and I was able to do a system restore. Everything booted up just fine for a few days until today I had an automatic windows update pushed and now I again get nothing but the blue screen of death.

Is there any way to get to restore prior to loading windows or am I just toast?

Any help/thoughts are greatly appreciated!

What's the error message you currently receive?

Unmountable boot volume errors can be a sign of hardware or file system problems...either of which may result in the hard drive becoming non-readable by XP.

The error message has varied, depending upon which boot method I employ.

Standard/1st was 0x000000ED (0x89ab1808, 0xc000014F) one time, I also got (0x89a26748)

Safe Mode was 0x0000007e (0xc00001d, 0x80536ddc, 0xf78ae3b8, 0xf78ae0b4)

STOP ED errors: Same as Unmountable boot volume errors, normally overcome (if such is easy) by running the chkdsk /r command from the XP Recovery Console.

STOP 7E errors: Numerous varied causes.

Resource data on all STOP errors: http://www.aumha.org/a/stop.htm

I'd try the chkdsk /r command.
