What does UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME mean when I turn my Windows computer on? The kernel boots up but during the screen where it says Windows... with the flashing bar, it goes into a blue screen with UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME.


(WHHHOOOAAAA I just got a temporary power outage when I typed this... good thing I have my UPS)

It means that something is wrong with your hard-drive, and lighting it on fire would solve said problem. :thumbsup:

Like everyone said, your hdd has probably just become a Clock, Wind chime, or paperweight. You could also have some other problem. The error message actually just means that you boot sector is corrupt or damaged. If BIOS sees the Drive it still maybe toast, but that doesn't mean you can't get your data off it. Slave it.
