I am unable to log in period now, I just get a blue error screen with an error code unmountable_boot_loader with a string of numbers that change with each reboot.



I did manage to get into the loading screen and it still shows my drives and factory recovery files from Dell.

This is my work computer and it has a lot of files that haven't been backed up(no excuse) so I would hate to lose them.









Hi all, my name is Greg, several years back I had a problem and it was cleared up here(thanks again) and now I am having problems again.


I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop with XP home sp3. I started having problems when it started rebooting continuosly even prior to logging in. I was able to boot into safe mode but w/o networking (all my devices in the device manager are gone(as in there is nothing there) so also all my networking connections are missing as well)).

I ran the latest Dr. webb with no results and also ran malware bytes numerous times and it keeps finding problems so I fix them, reboot and run again.

I have tried starting windows to last known good startup and that does nothing but reboot and while in safe mode I am unable to revert to an earlier time as it says unavailable.


I tried running windows recovery console but it failed and is no longer an option as it is missing now.
