Hello. I have a similar problem to SamathaKay, who posted earlier today about getting a BSOD when booting up. I have a shop-built desktop, circa 2006, running XP Pro. When booting up, the computer gets to the Windows screen with the little bar at the bottom, then the BSOD flashes only for an instant, and the whole boot process starts over. If I don't cut the power, it'll go on and on in this endless boot loop. I took a vid with my phone, trying to catch the BSOD to see what it says. I will try to attach it to this post. When you pause the BSOD (which occurs during the 8th second of the vid), it looks like it says, "UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME" along with some other stuff. I can't really make out the technical information at the bottom, partly because the stupid video is sideways. D'oh!
Anyways, any help for this? It first happened a couple years ago when I put in a cd that I thought contained some pictures. The problem happened, and we were just about to embark on a move across several states, so I didn't fool with it. Two hellish years later, I finally get around to unpacking this computer, and the dang thing still won't boot. Surprise. Yeah, I was hopin' it would fix itself.
Well crap, it looks like I can't upload the vid. It's a Quicktime vid, and almost 5 MB so I'm not really surprised.
Thanks for any insight.
