I have a dell latitude D531 series Laptop and it will not boot up at all. There is a blue screen of death with the message of 'unmountable boot volume'. When I boot into windows repair mode, the operating system is not shown. I cannot boot into safe mode. I have tried the command 'chkdsk' and the hard drive doesnt have any bad sectors. I have made sure that the hard drive is locked in place.
Is turning it into an external drive the only way to attempt to get any data off of the hard drive? Is the data gone all together?
I have the windows product key, so would reinstalling fix the problem and would I be able to save any data?
I am sorry if I am posting in the wrong topic/forum.
Any and all help is appreciated.
