    Microsoft Knowledge Base suggest to use bootcfg.exe to modify boot.ini. I do not have such file! Of course I set Explorer to show system and hidden files: I see boot.ini in the root list, but bootcfg.exe doesn't exist. Any advise?

    XP Pro or XP Home?

    It works on XP Pro ... that's certain.
    Start>Run>cmd to open Command Prompt.
    Then type "bootcfg /?" to see the options.

    Can't you just edit the boot.ini? I thought that was all you had to do. :confused:

    Yeah, editing it manually is the easiest way I think.
    I've never used bootcfg myself.
