I am working on a client's computer which is an HP Mini 1035NR that doesn't have a CD drive to use for recovery.

I am getting a BSOD Unmountable_Boot_Volume with STOP: 0x000000ED (0x86508C08, 0xC000009C, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

Do you guys have any ideas of how to boot the machine? I've already tried everything that I can think of.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Unmountable boot volume errors...are often overcome by running the chkdsk /r command from the XP Recovery Console.

Not guaranteed but worth a shot.

Unfortunately, no Recovery Console was installed and also as mentioned above, there is no CD drive. Any other ideas?

Yes...if the system is not bootable and you have no optical drive...I know of no way to run commands from the Recovery Console on that system.

But chkdsk /r or the equivalent...can be run on any drive/partition by attaching it temporarily (as a secondary drive) to a different system.

The chkdsk /r command can then be run from the command prompt or My Computer, just as it can for any additional partitions/drive that exist on a system.
