I've been stuck on this problem for three days now, and am about to give up. My brother was using his win xp computer when it crashed, he restarted it but it displayed a blue screen with the error "unmountable boot volume".
Nothing I can do can get the xp cd to boot, including removing every other device but the cd drive, making it the primary master and setting it to first boot device in the BIOS.
Then, I downloaded a winxp boot disk. When it loaded it came up with the error message "File \biosinfo.inf could not be found. The error code is 4104. Setup cannot continue".
Using a windows 98 boot disk I managed to access the win xp cd by going through d:/i386/winnt. It goes fine locating the files it needs on the cd but then it comes with an error message saying win xp needs 330MB free, and cant continue, but there is plenty of space on the hard disk.
I am absolutely stuck, should I just give up and tell my brother to go buy a new harddisk? Thanks a lot in advance.
