Hello,

My computer was running just fine the other day, but when i rebooted i received the following message on the infamous blue screen...

UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME

It asked me to reboot again and i tried all the different options but kept bringing me back to the same screen. The other info it has was this:

STOP: 0X000000ED (0X8131ED98,0X0000032,0X0000000,0X0000000)

What in the world does this mean and can you help me figure out how to fix it?

Thanks a bunch

it means that your boot volumn is corrupt. You need to try these things:

1.boot into the recover consle by using your windows disk
2. run FIXBOOT and FIXMBR from this console.
3. Reboot the computer.

If this does not work you will need to run a repair installation of windows.

I would suggest to remove the drive off system, cave it in usb enclosure or even directly hook up on other system and copy data off (if your data is value). Then, wipe the drive and so fresh installation.
Chance the drive is failing, so get other drive if you could that would be helpful.

It's also possible your BIOS has lost the setting for your Drive controller. Check what options you have there (IDE mode, Legacy mode, SATA etc. Try the different modes you get there, one might work.

It's certainly conceivable your HD is failing, as already suggested above.  Suggest you backup any valuable data you may have, then run a quick test on the HD using the appropriate manufacturer from here>
