unmountable boot volume file damage HELP!

  Parklife 14:04 17 Apr 2003

Hi all. Have read all the articles relating to this but have a problem. I cannot get into the recovery console as my advent laptop only came with an advent recovery disc and have no winxp cd rom. Cannot boot into safe mode or boot at all for that matter. I am in the library as have moved and don't know anyone here so I cannot download a boot up disc. If any one has any further ideas please help or post a start up disc to Andy Mayers, Security dept, butlins bognor regis, west sussex, PO21 1JJ. Will check posts tuesday. Cheers all.

If you have only XP on your comp this may work, But you need a boot disc. Start with boot disc when you get to Dos prompt type FDISK/MBR and press enter
