Upgrading Windows XP Pro

By computer_excel ·
I was upgrading OS from Win 98SE to Win XP Pro, and the middle of the process it stopped and rebooted. During rebooting it stopped on blue screen with an error message: Unmounted_Boot_Volume.

What I need to do to fix this problem?

Your computer uses an Ultra Direct Memory Access (UDMA) hard disk controller, and the following conditions are true:
You use a standard 40-wire connector cable to connect the UDMA drive to the controller instead of the required 80-wire, 40-pin cable.
The basic input/output system (BIOS) settings are configured to force the faster UDMA modes.
The file system is damaged and cannot be mounted.

To resolve this behavior, use the appropriate method.

UDMA Controller
If your computer uses a UDMA hard disk controller, use the following procedures:

Replace the 40-wire cable with an 80-wire UDMA cable.
In the BIOS settings for your computer, load the 'Fail-Safe' default settings, and then reactivate the most frequently used options such as USB Support.
Damaged File System
If the second parameter (0x bbbbbbbb ) of the Stop error is 0xC0000032, then the file system is damaged.

If this is the case, restart the computer to the Recovery Console, and then use the chkdsk /r command to repair the volume. After you repair the volume, check your hardware to isolate the cause of the file system damage.

To do this, use the following steps:

Start your computer with the Windows startup disks, or with the Windows CD-ROM if your computer can start from the CD-ROM drive.
When the Welcome to Setup screen appears, press R to select the repair option.
If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the Windows installation that you want to access from the Recovery Console.
Type the administrator password when you are prompted to do so.
