Toshiba Satellite reboots after the windows logo and progress bar go away. Flashes Blue Screen.
Posted on 2006-11-02
I have a Toshiba Satellite that gets past POST, starts booting Windows, I see the Windows XP logo with the bars moving, then a blue screen flashes and the laptop reboots.
A co-worker who has been troubleshooting this claims the blue screen message is "Unmountable Boot Volume" Win XP.
We assumed this was a boot.ini, so I ran "fixboot" from the recovery console, and when that didn't work, I also ran "chkdsk /r", which also did not work.
Any ideas what this could be, or how I can repair this without loosing the user's data?
(I only have an XP Pro CD, but the user's laptop is running XP home)
