Hi,
every time when I turn on my computer it says:
"Boot.ini has mistakes.
Loading from c:\windows\"
Checking out boot.ini I do not find anything written in it.
There are the options: /safeboot /Noguiboot /bootlog /basevideo /SOS /Minimal /Network /DSrepair. Must I click one of them? Must I write something in the window above?
Thanks for help! :cool:

yup...

sure enough it's empty. try putting this into it:

[boot loader]
timeout=10
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect

This one works for XP Pro. If you have home edition, not sure if you just change Professional to Home or not

yep just cut and past what hilander put in his post:

[boot loader]
timeout=10
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOW
S
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect

You can change the professional to HOME. Anything in the qoutes is just what will show op on boot. not a big deal.

actually if you have any problems, i attached my boot.ini file. Just make sure and change the file extention from boot.ini.txt to boot.ini

then copy it to c:\

that should work..

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
