Every single boot up I get this error mesage:

"Invalid boot.ini file"
"Booting from C:\windows\"

I mean idk whats its saying an why. But after that message it boots normally to the desktop and stuff.

I have a 320GB HD set as Primary and a 80GB set as Slave. I think this might have something to do with the problem, but everything functions properly. Once when I went to simply remove my Secondary drive and only have the primary in it would boot for some reason so, by not wanting to mess up my comp I put it back.

Im sorry, someone is already helping me with this. It was a mere mis-communication that this happened. You can close this if you want.

Sorry :whistling:

Thank you. :help:

Link to current forum - "http://www.geekstogo...d-t132695.html" after a helper had helped me with some malware, I asked about the Boot.ini, and someone started helping me (pages 2/3), if you want you can also help :blink: , Thank you. :)
