Till recently, it started showing "UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME" and refuses to boot up. Is there anything that can fix it, or is my hard drive completely damaged? 

Are you encountering the same blue screen of death on your ASUS, and the stop code shows "UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME?"

What Causes ASUS Unmountable Boot Volume

When people face a technical error, they often tend to get curious to know the reason behind that error. No doubt, it's the right direction to solve an issue properly. So, before moving to fix the error, you should know the real causes of this problem. Have a glance at the primary reasons that bring your operating system into this error zone:

  • Faulty System Files: Having corrupted or missing essential system boot files can cause the ASUS unmountable boot volume error. The integrity of the operating system gets disrupted, and the disk fails to boot until you recover files and repair your system.
  • Damaged Boot Drive: When your computer has a damaged or corrupted boot drive, Windows cannot recognize it, which causes logical errors. Sometimes, you can also not access a visible drive due to partition table corruption.
  • Damaged RAM: Using faulty RAM modules can cause data corruption and prevent booting files from loading. So, instability in the system results in failure to mount the boot drive.
  • Disk Errors: If your system disk is damaged, unrecognizable, or unreadable, it can cause the error. This can also happen when you unintentionally shrink or re-partition the boot partition.
  • Misconfiguration of BIOS: OS should be ranked first in the boot sequence. In any case, if it is misplaced, you may face the issue due to misconfiguration of BIOS.

ASUS Unmountable Boot Volume (4 Solutions)

We have discussed the primary reasons for the unmountable boot volume error that can appear due to system errors or user negligence. Well, whatever the reason, you need a solution to solve. So now, it's time to learn the four quick solutions to eliminate this hectic error.

  1. Solution 1. Rebuild Master Boot Record

Solution 1. Rebuild Master Boot Record

Rebuilding the Master Boot Record (MBR) is recommended to fix unmountable boot volume issues. All Windows versions automatically create a master boot record in the first sector of the disk. So, if your system hard disk or external drive gets damaged, it doesn't allow you to reboot your system. At that moment, you need something to rebuild MBR, and this is where EaseUS Partition Master Professional stands out to help you.

Solution 2. Run SFC Scan and CHKDSK

SFC and CHKDSK are command-based solutions that help scan and troubleshoot advanced Windows options. You can also fix the ASUS unmountable boot volume error using these direct commands. The SFC scan command allows the scan of all protected files and replaces corrupted files to resolve unmountable issues.

At the same time, the CHKDSK command scans your system hard disk to recognize errors and fix bad sectors. So, this is how you can access the Command Prompt and use these commands:

Step 1. Initially, turn on your computer and keep pressing the "F8" key again and again until the "Choose an option" screen appears. Once that screen is open, select the "Troubleshoot" option.

Step 2. Then, choose "Advanced options" from the given options. On the next screen, different advanced options appear. After that, select the "Command Prompt" to move forward and enter your commands.


Step 3. After moving into Command Prompt, type in sfc /scannow and press "Enter" to scan files and identify the corrupted ones.


Step 4. While using the CHKDSK command, type chkdsk /r /f and hit the "Enter" key. The /r parameter with the command helps to scan and recover readable files, while the /f parameter enables fixing errors on the disk.

Solution 3. Run Startup Repair

Running the Startup Repair function is another preferable method to bypass the error on your ASUS PC. It can diagnose and resolve the startup issue. If you cannot find this function directly, insert Windows installation media and boot ASUS from the USB or CD to access this option.

Well, these steps show the direct way to run automatic repair:

Step 1. Boot up the computer and press the "F8" key multiple times to access the "Choose an option" screen. After accessing the screen, choose the "Troubleshoot" option. Then, select "Advanced options."

Step 2. After moving forward to troubleshoot advanced options, choose "Startup Repair" to fix problems that are preventing Windows from loading.
