Windows 7: Random BSOD, error 0x101

Okay so it didnt do anything after 2 hours so I manually rebooted it. Tried starting windows normally but got a BSOD again. This time i recorded it.

It says "UNBOOTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME".

Googled it a little and inserted my Windows DVD. Had a hard time booting on it, even when priority was set on the Disc, it kept booting Windows and ask me to go in recovery or boot normally. I had to disable my drive in the Bios in order to boot from the DVD.

So once in the menu, I selected "Repair your computer" then this message pop'd: "This version of System Recovery Options is not compatible with the version of Windows you are trying to repair."

It is a genuine DVD.

What is next?

Managed to reach Safe Mode, but it wont boot anyway. It simply reboots after loading the drivers. Same for "Last Good Config".

Nothing does it.

My Windows 7 is installed on its own partition. If I ever have to Format.

Unbootable or unmountable?

Can you take a camera snap of the BSOD screen and upload it here? We need a confirmation that it is a stop 0xED or not, so that we can start troubleshooting?

Oh, yes. You are right. It's "Unmountable". Attachment 321421

Do you have access to another computer right now? If so, do two things .... none of those will need to boot into windows.

Test the HDD using Seatools for DOS.

Download Partition wizard Bootable CD (the last one in the link). Burn it in a blank CD or in a USB flash stick.

Boot into Partition Wizards GUI following this instructions. When you are on the last screen, take a camera snap of the screen and upload the snap here.

We need to see the partitions and parameters.

Let us know the results.

The drive which failed has Windows on it. Hope I can fix these errors and not format!

If it has been a Seagate or Maxtor HDD, Seatools would have attempted to recover those errors. But Seatools cannot repair a Western Digital HDD.

It is also doubtful that for how long the disc will go good if it is repaired.

Time to get a new disc.

Are you serious? This drive is about 6 months old!

Is there anyway to recover my stuff on it? Cant I just format the Windows Part?
