Computer Help / Re: W10 Unmountable Boot Volume
« on: May 31, 2018, 03:28:00 PM »
Hi Boggin, When the desktop first played up the diagnosing/ attempted repair failed.  The display with the various choices did at one stage appear before the usb drive W10 was made and at that point I tried to restore back to a restore point I had made a short while before the glitch started but that failed too and the constant message I was getting was the unmountable boot volume hence my asking for info. The weird thing is that although the restore point had failed and that was a couple of days ago, when the computer tonight decide to boot up normally one of the displays that appeared during boot up was one that said the restore point had failed. Upon checking the restore points the one chosen was still intact. I just can't fathom out why I was being told the C drive was unmountable. Still, thanks for your input and I will keep that info filed. Thank you.

Boggin, I have Googled again for info and tried a few re cd d: etc but to no avail. You will not believe what happened next....I have been tapping f11 to select the W10 OS on the usb stick. I did another power down and upon startup tapped f8. The desktop slowly booted up normally without a hitch and is now running at the speed of operations before the unmountable boot volume problem. W10 1803 is retained. I will power down and see if the next startup does so without a hitch. I just do not believe it after all the aggro of the failure.

OK Boggin but I do not know what to type in initially to get to the c drive. What do I actually type in the following Enter bcdedit |find "osdevice" . I keep getting incorrect input.

Hello Boggin, Today I ventured to carry out your info. I have inserted the usb stick into the desktop, started the computer, tapping f11 brought up the bios. I selected the usb stick and computer booted up. Went to advanced and commands. A panel came up with the following:
'not enough memory resources are available to process this command' and the next line has X:\Sources>
I do not know how to type in the parameters to access the c drive.

My PC bios enter is f11. I have a MSI motherboard in a Cyberpower PC. Will I lose any data using the USB drive method. I do have a factory reset disc that came with the computer but that wipes out all personal data and perhaps that would also fail because of the unmountable boot error. On the last day of April I clicked Windows Update and downloaded the 1803 update to take over from 1709. It reached installing 88% and then I got a
 PC error and it reverted back to 1709. The computer carried on working ok for a few days and then I got a black screen error so when the auto repair action failed and the panel came up with the advanced functions choice I did a reset to keep my user personal files. I keep all my bought and free programs data backed up on an external drive so began initially to reinstall a small number of bought programs.  A few days after I was informed that 1803 was available in Windows update and that installed without a hitch. I decided not to search Window Update for the cumulative 1803 update but wait until i was informed it was available for my PC.  So I commenced to reinstall the balance of the bought programs and it was towards the end of the list I noticed a slight sluggishness but thought nothing of it. Upon powering down I noticed that although 3 of the external usb self powered drive lights had extinguished a fourth drive light was still flickering and the computer was still running. I waited 20 minutes and as there was no change I turned the computer off by the power button. Turning on the computer again and failing to auto repair etc. the current unmountable boot volume error materialised. I did read that MS 1803 update was programmed to attempt to check for updates during boot up and also during powering down but did not think that that was the issue of the computer running for that 20 minutes plus the usb drive lights situation. Prior to all this when I was ready to update to 1709 up from 1603 a glitch occurred resulting in the inability to boot up the computer at all. I paid a repair chap to resolve it, which he did and returned the computer with the user folder intact and 1709 installed. I now tend to look at computing with apprehension rather than joy.

Hello Boggin, Thanks for your info. When I select run as administrator on the downloaded file what does the process say before it gets to choice.1.
I thought my initial attempt to run it looked as if it was going to set up an install to replace the laptop w10 OS. that is why I stopped it going any further.  The desktop built in W10 function of repair etc. failed as did a restore point using the advanced function of the panel that comes up after powering up computer twice and on the third power up auto repair etc. fails. When the USB stick is inserted in the desktop I assume I would have to set the bios to read the USB stick as the first bootable item or will it be automatically selected as the c drive being at fault will not boot up. Thanks.

Hello All, my W10 desktop computer has glitched with the 'unmountable boot volume' error and I have been Googling to find the info on how to resolve the issue. I have a usb stick ready and have downloaded the MS Media Creation Tool onto this W10 laptop I am currently using. I also printed out the instructions of the procedure. I have read of another set of instructions that differ from those I printed. I ran the tool as administrator but because I did not see the accept/deny function or the decision to select if I wanted the result to be used on another PC I stopped the immediate action of the apparent setting up of installing windows. Never having this boot error in the past I am loathe to progress until I know clearly every absolute step to correctly take. Can anyone please give me with this. Thanks.

Hi Boggin, I thought it may be useful for those who may have similar problems. Just one thing more....I have forgotten how to enter resolved.  :confused:

Hello Boggin, I called up the chat function on W10 Updates page and made contact with a MS agent. He led me through various actions and finally said to reboot the computer and the problem should be resolved. He also gave me a case number to get back. The problem was still there so again I made contact, this time with a different MS agent. I explained the procedures the previous agent had prescribed but the problem still existed. He asked if I would allow him to take control and I said OK. He did a few actions and I noticed a file he was downloading was one that I had come across by Googling prior to calling the chat line but I was loathe to download and run it due to my not being sure what to do. He ran the file and it hid the W10 update Lenovo files that were incorrect for my desktop as I am using a Logitech keyboard and mouse. He too finally said to restart the computer and that would rectify the problem. I did so and now am clear. The file he downloaded is wushowhide.diagcab.

I did look through Device Manager but that did not display anything to do with Lenovo. I am typing this query using the Lenovo laptop as I have yet to connect the external HDDs to the desktop but only booted it up yesterday to check it was running ok.

The updates only appeared after I got the computer back from repair but I have not yet checked previous restore points. Just a shot in the dark, I wonder if the repair company used a Lenovo keyboard and mouse to run the computer after the repair. Could there be drivers for such on the system.

Hello Boggin, but i am getting the updates on the desktop computer which has nothing to do with Lenovo. The desktop is a Cyberpower gaming m/c with a MSI motherboard. The Lenovo laptop has no such impending updates. I have not clicked on the install button on the desktop because both the keyboard and mouse are Logitech and are thus indicated as such in Device Manager.

Hello All, I have a Lenovo laptop and also a desktop (which I am typing this on now).  The desktop shut down 12 days ago due to the PSU failure so I sent the computer off for repair under the insurance policy. Yesterday I connected it up and of course there were a few W10 updates to install. What has happened and I can't fathom it out is that the desktop now has an impending install of a Lenovo keyboard and mouse install. Device manager show the correctly attached Logitech keyboard and mouse I have always used. I have a sharing folder with the Lenovo laptop and also my wife's ASUS desktop and have had no problems since doing so some 21 months ago. Can anyone shed some light on why. Please see enclosed screen grab. thanks.
