First, I had to fix the serious problem caused by fix INI instructions from a Premium Assistance guru. (Who never responded to emails saying I had a problem he causesd.) Then I hired a tech ($75, minimum charge) to resolve what the guru had caused. The tech also resolved the INI problem, which Techsupportlive, which does Redemption support, had not been able to do in 6 weerks. I'm not savvy enough to know what he did.

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.

What is *.ini files ? how can i create it ? what is the use of it ?


.INI files are plain-text files that contain configuration information. These files are used by Windows and Windows-based applications to save information about your preferences and operating environment. "INI" stands for initialization.
Format of .INI Files.INI files contain one or more sections. Each section begins with a section name, which is followed by zero or more entries. An entry associates a keyname with a value. The general format is:

[section]
keyname=value

Comments can also be included in the file by prefacing the comment with a semicolon (;).

Windows and Windows for Workgroups use several standard .INI files for storing configuration information. These files are WIN.INI, SYSTEM.INI, PROTOCOL.INI, PROGMAN.INI, CONTROL.INI, WINFILE.INI, MSMAIL.INI, SHARED.INI, and SCHDPLUS.INI. Windows-based programs may also add sections and entries to WIN.INI, and they may add .INI files in the Windows directory.

Editing .INI FilesBecause .INI files use only plain text, they can be edited using any text editor or word processor. .INI Master also has a built-in text editor for making corrections in the .INI files you are diagnosing.

To create a custom Setup.ini file:
  1. Start the Setup INI Customization Wizard.
  2. Type the path to your Office XP administrative installation point, and then click Next. The wizard searches the specified network share for a Setup.ini file.
  3. From the administrative installation point, select an INI file on which to base your custom INI file. Or, click Browse to go to a different location and select a file. Click Next.
  4. Under Logging, select a logging mode, and then type a name for the log file or template. Click Default to use the logging mode that is specified in the INI file. Click Verbose to use all logging options. Note that verbose logging creates very large log files.
  5. Under Display, select a default display setting, and then click Next. The wizard searches the administrative installation point for additional packages (MSI files) that you can chain to the Office installation.
  6. Select the check boxes next to the packages that you want to include in your custom INI file, add packages or programs (EXE files) that are stored in another location, and then click Next.
  7. Use the arrow keys to determine the order in which you want Setup.exe to install the chained packages. The System Files Update package is always installed first (if required), followed by the Office XP package. You can change the order in which subsequent chained packages are installed.
  8. Select each package, specify the options that you want for that package, and then click Next. For each package, you can specify an MST file and a unique display setting, as well as additional property values.
  9. To add additional property-value pairs to your custom INI file, select a package, click Advanced Properties, type the properties and values that you want, and then click Next. The wizard displays a summary of the changes to save in the custom INI file.
  10. Click Save As, and then type a name and path for your INI file. The wizard supplies a sample Setup command line that specifies your custom INI file with the /settings option.
  11. Click Finish to quit the wizard.

Hello, I have 2 Operating Systems in a computer namely Windows XP(SP3) in C:\ & Windows Server 2003 in D:\ . I've deleted the file BOOT.INI accidentaly form X:\ drive(X:\ means all drives like...


Hi,
That's not a virus. Boot.ini is a default file needed for Windows OS to boot.
Fortunately, you can recreate the boot.ini files

This is a sample of the above Boot.ini file with a previous installation of Windows 2000 on a separate partition. [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="Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINNT="Windows 2000 Professional" /fastdetect

Simple way to add operating system on a separate partition:
At the command prompt, type: bootcfg /copy /d Operating System Description /ID# Where Operating System Description is a text description (e.g. Windows XP Home Edition), and where # specifies the boot entry ID in the operating systems section of the BOOT.INI file from which the copy has to be made.

Redemption backup - restore not working


I found the solution. You have to go to their website http://www.techsupportlive.com/ and intsall the update (Redemption_Upgrade_15A.exe) which was posted on April 10th, 2008.

I did that, and it fixed the issue. Oh, after you install the update, use Tools menu to repair and manage your stores as necessary.

Here is the full blurb from their website: Problem: “Invalid file” and “No items were selected” message’s displayed when I perform Restore (Full restore, File restore and Find files restore). How to avoid or over come this problem?

Solution: This kind of problem occurs when the drive letter of the HD partition changes it can be resolved either by changing the existing drive letter of HD part to the original letter or by upgrading to the latest version as available in the techsupportlive.com and perform the Repair Catalog operation.

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
