The rest of the error code would be of great assistance in troubleshooting this issue, as the code provides specific information on where to start looking.

The STOP 0x000000ED UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME error is likely to occur when the Windows XP NTFS file system has become corrupt. To repair the file system, perform the following steps:

1. Install the Recovery Console
2. Restart the computer in the Recovery Console
3. Run the CHKDSK /P command; if the problem persists, then run the CHKDSK /R command
4. Run the Fixboot command if the problem persists after running CHKDSK options
5. Run hard drive diagnostics

To perform CHKDSK /P, do the following:
1. In the Recovery Console, type CHKDSK /P and press the <Enter> key.
2. The prompt Are you sure? appears.
3. Press the <Y> key and then press the <Enter> key.
4. Type EXIT and press the <Enter> key.
*Same thing goes with CHKDSK /R

If the system still will not boot to the hard drive, attempt to run the CHKDSK /R command again. Depending on the corruption on the hard drive, it may take several tries to achieve a complete repair.

If the system is slow after performing the CHKDSK/R, then run the Disk Defragmenter application against the hard drive.

To run the FIXBOOT command, do the following:
1. In the Recovery Console, type Fixboot X: and press the <Enter> key, where X is the drive letter of the partition you are logged into.
2. The prompt Are you sure? appears.
3. Press <Y> and then press the <Enter> key.
4. Type EXIT and press the <Enter> key.

Hope this helps!
