unknown reason for boot.ini

Recommended Posts

Is it WIN XP?

I'm thinking this will help you: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;330184

Sol'n #2: from the command prompt: CHKDSK/R

Sol'n #3: From XP CD, go to Recovery Console Mode, run "fixboot"

Sol'n #4: From XP CD, go to Recovery Console Mode, run "fixmbr"

Couldnt have said it better myself FallowEarth :)

BTW..if all those dont work,you can try booting up with a startup disk,try to get to a command prompt,and try to edit your boot.ini file to the correct settings.If not..then you would have to reformat,and re-install ;)

ok so the comp is set to NTFS not FAT32.  I wasnt able to run the chkdsk until restart and everything came back ok.  Also the fixboot and fixmbr didnt work from the CMD.  Is it possible I have a virus that Norton, Spysweeper, and Adaware arent picking up?

Man I feel like a noob not being able to figure this out  :confused1:

to view ur current boot.ini file, go to:

control panel -> system -> advanced -> startup and recovery settings -> and then press Edit button

This will open notepad with your current boot.ini file in it.. Just copy+paste what it says in this forum and we can better tell you if its something from it :)
