Windows 7: Unfixable Unmountable Boot Volume

Fraid so mate and all the bloat too but that in itself is a good thing as they put one heck of a lot on Toshiba's and make it to look indispensable which of course it isn't unless you have some masochistic wish to be weighed down with crap.

Now the updates mate I don't probably have to tell you be careful with the amount you download and I always set my machines to let me know they are available but let me pick which to download and install. I always do them in small batches and if something goes south there isnt so much ground to go over again.

Normally I would be in 100% agreement, but this is my brother's laptop, and he went to a computer shop about 16 - 18 months ago and had them replace his hard drive. That would make this the third HDD in this Dell Inspiron in under 2 years (That PC shop replaced whatever his original drive make was with one from Toshiba). So I don't really care at this point - I'm letting it do all 145 updates at once. We're going out for the evening and I don't intend to babysit this thing.

No probs mate and if you want my opinion for what it is worth steer clear of Toshiba drives I had nothing but absolute grief with both my laptops until I changed them myself to Seagates then I have now SSD's in them of course as I don't need a great deal of data storage.

Good luck and let us know how you go.
