When I did that it said it couldn't find that file? So I put a space after D: and it came to the setup folder. I clicked on setup, but it wouldn't let me setup because it said I had a newer version of windows that what the cd had?

ok,
download the above, and burn it to a cd and use that to reboot (a recovery console on a cd).

do you know how to burn an iso?

I think I got my Invalid Boot.Ini problem fixed. I have another topic going in the malware forum. I just typed in the boot.ini into the boot notepad and it seems to work. I have really appreciated all your help. Glad to know there is somewhere to go when you have a problem. Thanks again

I was reluctant to suggest that since I do not know your harddrive configuration and doing what you did can render your system inoperable

I hope you didn't take it as me saying you wasn't any help. You were extremely helpful also. I should have given you my hardware config beforehand. Just hope if I ever have any other problems, you will be willing to assist me with them. Thanks again

no i did not take it that way at all...it's difficult to guess how advanced different users are....recreating the arc paths in a boot.ini file is a more advanced skill, especially do the inconsistancy in identifying controllers

what with 0 equalling the first device for some settings and 1 equalling the first for other things....you can hoarke up a pc....
