my cousin has a dell dimension 2400 that just randomly took a dump, before i got the machine, it would refuse to boot to any mode, safe or otherwise, with the stop error, unmountable boot device, now, it takes an ungodly amount of time to boot, and bsods with "unknown boot error", but there's something peculiar with the bsod, it doesn't display the entire bsod message. just stop 0x0000218 unknown boot error" no what caused it, no "Windows has been shut down, blah blah blah", nothing. any ideas

Reinstall the OS, maybe that'll fix the problem

If it doesn't, your HD or the IDE controller could be [censored] up.

Dells have this problems.

If you got an DELL machine and try to boot with an Harddrive thats from another machine it generates an BSOD and refuses to boot.

Try to reinstall and then it works (hopefully).
