Windows 7: Unmountable_boot_volume

17 Dec 2010   #1

Windows 7

I am currently on my Ubuntu OS, since booting into Windows will no longer work. When I try, there is half a second of a BSOD with UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME and I was only able to read that by breaking out the video in my phone and stopping the video at the moment where the BSOD showed up.

In the past few days, I have re-installed Windows twice, and this is the third time I have had this problem. There is no minidump folder from what I can see from here by the way =/

I just tried:

sudo ntfsfix /dev/sda2
sudo ntfsfix /dev/sda3
sudo ntfsfix /dev/sda5

Those are the two primary Windows partitions I use, along with a seperate logical partition for my files that I use in either/both Ubuntu and Windows 7.

It says operation successful for all of them. I am going to attempt to boot back into Windows 7, but I do not believe it will work since this is my second time trying this.

I have also tried Startup Repair by the way, which leaves me at a blank black screen for a very long time. I shut the laptop off eventually.

I have tried using my Windows 7 disc to repair but I had the same thing happen after hitting the "repair" option. Or worse, it reaches "Setup is loading..." or whatever the message is right before the dialog comes up and never passes that point. Last time I just re-formatted the 100 MB windows partition for system files and the other partition the program files went on, and I was able to load up and install Windows again with no issue.

Any idea what could be causing these problems?? Or how I could hope to fix them...?
