My friend got this blue screen of death with "UNMOUNTABLE BOOT VOLUME"  I tried to get passed it by F8 on start up and trying everything on it   "SAFE MODE" etc  but still Blue Screen..my friend does not have his original boot disk..but I came across this website for downloading a boot disk..  

http:neosmart.net/EasyRE

He has XP

Yes, NeoSmart Technologies is not a scam site.  However, I hope you know you have to pay for EasyRE.  Why don't you post here instead?: Windows Crashes, BSOD, and Hangs Help and Support

Thanks Agouti  I did not realise that...I will certainly go to your post ..in the meantime I have System Mechanic and one of it's features is you can make a recovery disk..I just made one for my XP.... do you think this will work on my friends XP to recover from BSOD

Thanks again

Registry cleaner - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Registry_cleaner

I would not recommend System Mechanic for installation/use on any system.

I've been using System Mechanic for many years..I started at version 7 and now up to version 15..I've never had any problem with it and it has kept my PC working great...I don't use the Antivirus or Internet Security  though as I don't think it's up to par..I use Webroot Secure Anywhere for security

I'm not here to convince you of anything...but the fact is that your current situation may well be the direct/indirect result of such use.  If you read the information provided on why any system user should be wary of "registry cleaners/optmizers", I think you can see the points made as valid.

 

You might also read possible causes/solutions for Unmountable Boot Volume situations, https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/555302 .
