XP - Unmountable Boot Volume

 XP - Unmountable Boot Volume

boot from the  reinstallation disc

open recovery console

When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
 At the command prompt, type chkdsk /r , and then press ENTER.
At the command prompt, type exit , and then press ENTER to restart your computer.

This takes a bit longer, but the system should boot back into Windows.
If the above process fails to restore the system
repeat the steps by opening recovery console
then  use fixboot command instead of the chkdsk /r command.
