It might be a virus that's deleting the file. I once came across a PC that had a similar problem. You may have to update your antivirus and do a complete system scan.

Same thing just happened to me.  No virus or spyware necessary.  IE8 caused the problem.  One step short of reloading the customer's pc I found this fix.  Good catch MarkE... whatever made you think of that I don't know but it was good for us.

Had the same problem and you pointed me in the right direction.  Uninstall IE8 did the trick, however it wasn't a good long term solution from as WSUS would eventually push IE8 down again to the problem computer.  A bit more checking showed that IE8 and the 'Ask' toolbar are a bad combination.  Uninstall the 'Ask' toolbar rather than IE8 and get the same result - boot.ini is no longer deleted on each reboot.  So you can use the recovery console and bootcfg /rebuild to put it back and everything should work.

Of course if you don't have the 'Ask' toolbar installed, you're probably stuck removing IE8

Nothing else worked even without third-party toolbars.
