Ok so heres the deal. I've had this laptop for about 5 years so its outdated basically but still gets the job done at college instead of having my sexy desktop here. when i was in high school they gave everyone these dell laptops too use and when we graduated we kept them. But, the shitty part is that it doesn't have a floppy drive, or a cd drive cause they only let us keep the 2 batteries instead of giving a cd drive . And now Windows finally crapped on me. it tells me the UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME error each time i restart it. i cant get in safemode or anything, same error for each option. Is there any way to boot from a ipod (USB) if i put windows on it and fix it or reinstall windows, or am i shit out of luck? or any other way to fix it? like what if i took out the harddrive, put it in my desktop and reinstalled windows on it and then put it back in? i dont know, im just thinking of anything cause i really need it even though it is garbage and im too poor to get a new one until my parents get me one for christmas or soemthin . any help please.
