I have Compaq computer using Windows XP professional. I couldn't boot it. I got error message "UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME". I rebooted computer with XP CD-ROM, clicked repair and ran chkdsk /r. After about 30 minutes, 25% of checking hard drive, it stopped with the error that the volume seems to contain one or more unrecoverable errors. How it possible for chkdsk to stop working? Did anybody have similar experience? Even if certain part of disk is bad, it should mark it bad and continue verification. Do I make sense?
