Correct formatting on BOOT.INI file

If you introduce switches without a space in the boot.ini file (see /fastdetect/3GB in the exampe below) will the switches be recognised during the boot process on Windows Server 2003?

multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Windows Server 2003, Enterprise" /noexecute=optout /fastdetect /PAE=optout /fastdetect/3GB /USERVA=3030 /NOPAE

Thanks in advance,
Alex

It will boot, but the combined switch will be ignored.  /fastdetect/3gb will probably be classified as a spelling mistake and neither one will be process.  The remaining switches should be ok.

I have never tried leaving out a space when it was deemed "required" in the syntax to separate switches.  But, you do have /fastdetect in the syntax line twice.

This is the link on the /3GB switch.

Good Reading on /3GB and errors it can cause:
