Invalid boot.ini when starting PC


The boot file is misplaced in your PC. to solve the problem boot it from an OS installation disk. then when you get the phase of installing there will be an option called "repair your computer". click on it and follow the instructions..(takes under 5 minutes) also use startup check to remove common errors..i can give you an accurate description if you post the correct OS i can give more accurate steps.

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.

Cannot get into safemode; using F8 repeatedly or continously does not work


which OS you are trying?
if it is Windows Xp then the option must working
With some computers if you press and hold a key as the computer is booting you will get a stuck key message. If this occurs, instead of pressing and holding the "F8 key", tap the "F8 key" continuously until you get the startup menu.
if not done then try the following method.

Close all open programs

Click Start, Run and type MSCONFIG in the box and click OK

The System Configuration Utility appears, On the BOOT.INI tab, Check the "/SAFEBOOT" option, and then click OK and Restart your computer when prompted.
The computer restarts in Safe mode.
Perform the troubleshooting steps for which you are using Safe Mode.>
When you are finished with troubleshooting in Safe mode, open MSCONFIG again, on the BOOT.INI tab, uncheck "/SAFEBOOT" and click OK to restart your computer

Memory not written error application occurs (OK to TERMINATE)


Try this: I got it from another website

Hit Windows + R and type cmd and press enter afterwards. Navigate to c:\ by typing cd.. until you are there. Boot.ini is hidden and write protected which means that we have to change that before we are able to edit it. Type the following commands:
  1. attrib -r -h -s boot.ini
  2. edit boot.ini
  3. Look for /NoExecute Optin or /NoExecute Optout and change that to /NoExecute AlwaysOff
  4. Save the edited file
  5. type attrib +h +r +s boot.ini
  6. restart the computer

Invalid boot.ini


One of these two methods should fix your problem......... -------------------------- go to run and type in MSCONFIG. Then click on the "Boot.ini" tab. First, make sure if using XP Pro that the following is listed: [boot loader] timeout=30 default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS [operating systems] multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect - this is the boot.ini information from XP, straight from the Microsoft Web Site. All the information below [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 reachign 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 irritating message. ------------------------ Or you can try this method.... right click on my computer go to properties then click the advanced tab then cilck settings under start up and recovery under system startup then click edit and paste [boot loader] timeout=30 default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS [operating systems] multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect --------------------------------- Peter
