UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME

Hello all,

I've had to reset the server and when I rebooted it I've seen this message:

UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME
 
(..)
 
STOP: 0x000000ED (0x8616IE30, 0XC000009C, 0X00000000, 0X00000000)"

Anybody can help to solve this matter?
I'm using SBS 2003 Premium.

if this is a drive attached to a ide raid controller, sata or scsi drive this error can be caused by a corrupt driver for the controler the drive is a ttached to

in this case a repair install wil work.

This hard drive is on a dedicated server and I can get access directly. I always connect by terminal server. There are SAT in this place and they will change the hard drive. But I don't know if with this action the problem will be solved.

Insert the OS CD and boot into Recovery Console !!

For more info. on how to boot into Recovery Console, check here,
How To Use the Recovery Console on a Windows Server 2003-Based Computer
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/326215

after entering there, when u will get the C:\Windows, type the following three commands and hit Enter after each line !!

chkdsk /r   (dont cancel if it takes too long, just wait until it finishes)
chkdsk /p
fixboot C:  (in case ur windows is installed on another drive, change the driver letter according to that)

after it finishes, type Exit, and ur system will restart, take out the CD and it shud boot with ur drive now without any problem :)
