With the XP CD you can also go to install a fresh copy of windows and
it will prompt you to repair, that is a more complete repair from what
I have found...
Otherwise go to the website of the hard drive manufacturer and download
their hard drive diagnostics.
Do you have a hard drive overlay such as Max Blast?
Windows XP sometimes has issues with overlay software.
You may need to perform a Clean Installation without their overlay software
which is not needed anyway.

I can't boot up my pc (blue screen) with an error that
says unbootable volume mount.
Is there any way to create startup disks on another xp pc?
All I need to do is get some data off the system
