I got the "UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME" Message when I boot to safe mode on My Dell SATA 400GB HDD as written below,
"Error message: A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME"
I ran hard drive diagnostics from Dells Boot Partition and got the following result.
Error Code: 0F00:0244 MsgBlock:6528484 Uncorrectable data error
I then booted with my XP cd and did a chkdsk /r from the Recovery Console.
Chkdsk is running super slow, it go to 59% after 10 hours and has been stuck at 59% for another 10 hours.
Will it be harmful if I unplug the system to get out of chkdsk /r or is there a better way to get out of chkdsk when it hangs or is just super slow like this?
