Have a problem with a Dell machine (Dimension 9100). It locked up and when I reset it I got the Unmountable book error. I know how to fix this using the Recovery Console when I was using an IDE drive in my old PC, but this one is a SATA drive. How do I get the recovery console to repair a SATA drive.

Cheers

I think for the Recovery Console to be able to see your SATA driver you will need to press F6 as the Recovery Console starts up & load the drivers off a floppy.
