One of my computers running windows XP started to reboot during windows loading. It gets to the windows loading screen and then reboots. It keeps doing this forever. I used F8 to set it not to reboot automatically so I could see the blue screen error.
The error is UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME
I checked that all the wires and ram and cards are seated properly, and I used a vista recovery cd to run chkdsk /r
It found a couple small things and fixed them (something like 4 sectors)
But it keeps getting the same UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME blue screen.
The user caused this by using the power button on the front of the machine to turn the computer off while windows was still loading (shortly after getting to the desktop). Upon next boot it got this error. (Also the user has apparently used the power button to turn off the machine many times in the past...)
What should I try next?
