I dont know if its a coincidence, but I left my blu ray drive open when I turned my PC off, and all hell broke loose.

Now I get these Unmounable Boot Volume BSOD's

So Far, i've switched around the boot configuration.

I've taken out the cmos battery.

I've disconnected my 2nd hard drive

I've reset bios default settings

i've switched the SATA ports

I dont know what else to do, because I don't wan't to do a Fresh OS install.

Right now I'm just working on 1 hard drive. my second 1tb is disconnected from power and data and i'm having the same problem.

I also just disconnected my Blu-ray drive

And I did the start up repar.

Niether worked.

Hi :) 

Unmountable boot volume is usually a crashed hd...

Run HIRENS CD ...hard drive test in DOS...

All the best Brett :)

Nothing to do with your BD-ROM. Your HDD is either corrupted or dead.

okay, hooked EVERYTHING back up, tried to run safe mode, musta got a blu screen, i want there..and the repair screen came back on. I took a shower, came back, my motherboard startup screen was still on, i started the computer up and everything is working okay now.

Now i'm doing a chkdsk.

Chkdsk doesn't stop on error, it just fixes them and continues booting.

I'd recommend running a SMART test on your drive to check its overall health. If it doesn't ace the tests, replace it.
