- this is the boot.ini information from XP, straight from the Microsoft Web Site. [operating systems] should be on one line!
If you have a blank boot.ini file, copy and paste this information - if all information is already there, then don't change anything.
Next, click the button that says "check all boot paths". You should get back a message stating that everything is good (the computer checks to make sure the boot.ini file is compatible with Microsoft Operating Systems).
Next, assuming your computer likes the boot.ini file that is in there (and it should), then click the button that says "set as default". By doing this, you have now created a new (modified) boot.ini file that is a carbon copy of the original.
Click apply. You will be prompted to restart. Before doing so, go back to MSCONFIG and in the general tab you will see that "use modified boot.ini" should now be checked.
During reboot, you should not get the invalid boot.ini message (at least I didn't). What you will get is a message ,after reaching the desktop, stating that you are not using the defaults or something like that and do you wish to go back into MSCONFIG to restore the default settings. Since your new boot.ini file is exactly the same as your original, click no and check the box to hide that message.

What do you see when you Start > Run > MSCONFIG?

Goto C:\WINDOWS\pss and copy 'boot.ini.backup' to your C: drive and rename it to 'boot.ini'. Reboot your machine and this problem should be gone.
