Showed up: 0x000000ED Uncountable boot volume

Asked By 30 points N/A Posted on -


Hello there,

I was using my computer and then this showed up: 0x000000ED Uncountable boot volume. What is this all about? I have tried restarting the computer but nothing happens.  What else should I do? I do not have the instillation disk.

Can this be a problem?

Hi Jonathan. The cause of this problem could be any of the following:

1. The file system is damaged.

2. You use a standard 40-wire connector cable to connect the UDMA drive to the controller instead of the 80-wire, 40-pin cable.

3. The basic input/output system (BIOS) settings are configured to force the faster UDMA modes.

If the problem is with the cable connector, replace the 40-wire cable with an 80-wire UDMA cable.

If it's a BIOS settings problem, load the 'fail safe' default settings, and then reactivate the most frequently used options such as USB support.

That's all you can do without a CD-ROM.

Hello jonathen

This problem is related to some registry file corruption due to sudden or inappropriate shutdown or restart.But some time, it is due to installed application in your C drive.One solution is to run the Chkdsk/r in command prompt (cmd ) but before that backup your valuable data first. Hope it will work for you.If it does not work just reinstall your OS because there is no any other method to solve this.

Hope for the best

There seems to be a lot of people experiencing this error and none seems to have a concrete solution. Try this one that worked for one user. Restart your computer then press F8 before the Windows logo appears then select “Repair” and then go to the command prompt. In the command prompt, type without quotes “chkdsk /r” then hit Enter.

Once all the checking and repairs are finished, restart your computer then press Del to go to the BIOS. In the BIOS, make sure all AHCI and RAID features are turned off and SATA drive must be set to IDE. After this save all the changes and restart the computer. See if this fixes the problem.
