Basically I need to sort out the family computer before i go off to university (taking my new one)... Unfortunately the PC i'm leaving behind has taken a bit of a battering over the years and whenever I go to start it up and the message "missing boot.ini file" appears. I've looked up how to sort the problem and the advice i get is "use the recovery console" except i really have no idea how to do this If someone could help me, it would be very much appreciated.
Also.. a quick note.. the computer does start up if i put a CD in it... any CD seems to do? Not sure if this is of any help.
Thanking you in advance!
