Original Title: Unmountable boot volume Dell desktop that will not load Windows XP, even in safe mode
Unmountable boot volume
I have an older (2004) Dell desktop that will not load Windows XP, even in safe mood. It starts to load, but then gives me a blue screen with an error message saying--
Stop :0x0000000ED (0x82B567B8,0xc0000006,0x00000000,0x00000000)
I've been reading on the forum that other people have had similar issues. Many of the responses seem to recomend using either the recovery console or the XP installation CD, booting up using the disk and running some sort of diagnostics. I do not believe that the computer has a recovery console installed on it and I'm not sure if I have the correct XP installation CD. The computer came from Dell with Windows XP preinstalled and they gave me a "reinstallation CD" for Windows XP, but I thought that disk was for resetting the operating system to the original settings and eliminating all saved files. I just don't want to clear all my saved files as it has been a while since I've backed my stuff up.
What do I need to do? I'm not super computer savy and I'm kind-of over my head.
