Invalid boot file ini fix dell opti plex 270


bonvicin66,

Unfortunately, you are going to need to have a Windows Disk to run a Repair Install from the disk. If running a repair install does not resolve the boot.ini error you will need to format and reinstall Windows.
To get a Windows disk you can search the internet for a disk. If you are in the US you can try getting a disk from the link below.

RETURN A DELL OPTIPLEX GX 60 TO ORIGINAL FACTORY STATE


maybe you have a virus or infection. Maybe you have low RAM Memory. Maybe the hard drive needs to be defragged.

You should just boot from the disk you have and that will walk you thru the install process. Put the Disk in the cd drive. Turn the computer off, then turn it back on and notice the screen for which key it says to hit to Change the Boot Order or Boot Sequence. Hit that key and let it boot from the CD start the recovery.

one step you can check boot device menu by clicking f2

Dell Optiplex GX270 will not boot from disk


Does it show

boot from cdrom?
did you answer (Y)
then hit spacebar?
have the bios set to boot from cdrom/first boot device cd-rom?
If any of these settings are not applyed you will not restore xp on your computer

go into bios and conferm settings

first boot device if set as floppy or hard drive change to cdrom
on some systems you can hit the (f12) key to bring up a boot window and select the cdrom and boot from there then it will ask the normal questions

I have many problems in my dell gx 270 desk pc


1.go into the control panel under sound and make sure the volume is at least half way in the middle of the slide selector. also check the volume nob on your speakers, and there is also a volume control in media player. If all that does work, download and reinstall the driver from dell site again.
2. in system tools go to clean disc, a box opens, put a check mark in everything there (you don't need any of them) run it. then go back into system tools and this time select disc defraggmenter and click on defragment and go have a snack, when that is done reboot.
3. if you didn't put a password in when you reinstalled XP you won't need one. just click ok. and if you don't want to see it at all, in the control panel under Users turn off the Guest user ...
now down to the important stuff...that is not my picture you are seeing.
so I hope this info helps you. please leave a rating..thank you kindly
