Do you have Run on your Start list? Right click Start - Properties -
Start Menu Tab - Customize - Put a check mark for Run - OK or Apply

If you think you have a conflict click Run - Type msconfig - OK
Startup Tab - Uncheck and write down the ones you uncheck -
Click Apply and follow directions. Start your computer (not Safe Mode)
If you still have a problem loading go back to msconfig and recheck the
ones you unchecked and uncheck a new batch. Click APPLY each time.
If after going through all the Startups and the computer still won't load.
Microsoft has 2 tools you can try that's on your computer.

Windows XP
1. Error Checking- CD not needed
Start - my computer - right click local disk (C) - properties - Tools Tab -
Error checking section - Check now - check mark both boxes - Start -
This requires a restart to begin.

2. Start - Run - type - sfc /scannow - OK
Don't forget the space between c and /
You will need the Recovery CD if any thing is found wrong.
Don't insert unless asked for.

If nothing works Reply back. Others may have a better suggestion.

Boot the computer and starting very early, press F8 repeatedly, do not hold down the key, and when the boot choices menu appears, choose
Disable automatic restart on system failure.
That will attempt to load Windows normally.

If a blue screen appears it will stay on the screen.

Copy down the things that are unique in the message and post them here.


STOP: 0Xx00000xx (we don't need the stuff in brackets beside that)


There may be a problem file named at the end of the text.

There may be a link to More info or similar - if so, click on it to see if it names a problem file.

There may be a mention of a MINIDUMP file having been made - if so, copy down the name and location of it - you may need to click on a link to find that. That MINIDUMP file can be analyzed.

You could try selecting Enable VGA mode rather than Safe mode after repeatedly pressing F8 while booting. Everything loaded in Enable VGA mode is the same as in normal mode except that the video uses default VGA drivers the same as Safe mode does.If that works, your problem is related to the specific video drivers that are loaded when you boot normally.You can always Un-install video drivers in Add or Remove Programs in Enable VGA mode - you often can't do that in Safe mode.

You could also try selecting Last known good.....after repeatedly pressing F8 while booting.

"2. Start - Run - type - sfc /scannow - OK
Don't forget the space between c and /

You frequently can't use sfc /scannow successfully.

- sfc /scannow will NOT run in Safe mode, but it will run in Enable VGA mode if that works.

- if the computer has a brand name software installation the contents of the \i386 folder normally found on the CD may be already on the hard drive and in that case you won't be asked to insert the CD

- sfc /scannow will NOT recognize the source of files as valid unless the source has the same SP updates integrated into it as the present Windows installation. E.g. if the CD (or the \i386 folder on the hard drive) has SP2 or SP1 updates or no SP updates, you can't successfully run sfc/scannow when Windows has had SP3 updates installed.

- if sfc /scannow DOES recognize the source of files as valid, if it's a CD, you often get messages saying it couldn't find a file on the source. If you click on Retry it will usually find the file when it tries again. You may need to do that many times.
If Retry doesn't work, try cleaning the laser lens on the optical drive, or cleaning the CD, or both.

- you can't easily quit running sfc /scannow once it has started running. If you want to stop running it, hold down the Alt and Ctrl keys, press Del, let go of all 3 keys, to pop up Task Manager, then press ALT-U, then press U to Shut Down Windows or R to Restart Windows

This Topic is relatively OLD.
You should click on Start a New Discussion at the bottom of this page to make your own Topic, then your Topic will initially be at the top of a list, and will stay near the top of the list, where more people are going to see it and may respond to it.

You have not told us anything about under what circumstances you get this error.

Include all the detail about that you can think of.

Search the web using: STOP: 0x000000ED


When you restart your computer or upgrade to Windows XP, you receive the "STOP 0x000000ED UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME" error message

STOP 0x000000ED (0xaaaaaaaa,0xbbbbbbbb,0xcccccccc,0xdddddddd)


There are other reasons for getting that error.

E.g. If you attempt to boot from a hard drive that's in an external enclosure - an external hard drive - that already has an existing Windows 2000 or greater installation on it, you will always get the STOP: 0x000000ED error, and there is no workaround for that - Microsoft does not allow you to boot a computer from an external hard drive.
