Need to recreate the boot.ini file quickly, should be easy to solve.
Posted on 2003-12-08
I purchased a new Compaq Presario w/ XP-home installed. I wanted to make it a dual boot machine with W2k-pro. I partitioned the drive, installed W2k. W2k works fine, except it over-wrote the boot.ini file. I started to look for the XP-home repair disks so that I could restore the boot.ini file and found that they are installed on the hard-drive in a separate partition that is not visible when I boot into W2k, so I can not recreate the Repair disks. So, the problem is how do I recreate/edit the boot.ini file so that I can switch between XP-home and W2k? Can someone send me the correct text so that I can save it to a floppy and replace the one that I have? Thanks.
