So I have a laptop (lately all my computers are going to crap) that used to have vista but I "upgraded" to XP. I have been getting unmountable boot volume BSOD errors. Once every 20 or so boots it boots up properly. Because of this, I haven't shut down the computer at all. I have had no problems with it since. Well, today I did an update which required a reboot. The laptop went into the loop again of trying to boot up and then getting the BSOD. I don't think its a hardware issue or anything to do with the HDD. When it did boot into windows, I ran HDD checks and nothing came up. The drive came up healthy and without errors. Today just for the hell of it, I decided to pop in a boot cd that I had made. Lo and behold, it boot up right away. So is this an XP issue or did I just get lucky and my HDD is still crap?
