Ok, this might be hard to understand, as I can't explain it well. When I turn on my laptop, which runs Windows XP Pro, right after the part where a cursor appears at the top right, so that you can enter setup (you hit either F8 or F10 I believe), and error message appears in the upper left corner, that states something very similar to the following: Invalid boot.ini file Booting from windows c:/ Now that might not be the exact message as it appears and then disappears really quickly. Windows continues to load fine, and no apparent problems are present. But, I am not comfortable with this error appearing, as it just began. Can someone please help me out with this? Thanks.
