msconfig help!

When I go to msconfig there isn't a boot.ini tab? Is there a way to get this
back? My installation is on D: directory instead of c:?
Hope there is a way to re - install it ? Any help would be greatly
appreciated! A.S.A.P. please?

Re: msconfig help!

You can rebuild boot.ini with the BOOTCFG utility in the Recovery Console.
bootcfg /rebuild

Other changes can be made inside Windows
HOW TO Edit the Boot.ini File in Windows XP:

Re: msconfig help!

Gerry,
I installed program and did a scan and before I could fix anything I would
need to get registry code by buying through pay pal or another way. So free
as far as I figured out was the anaylasis of my machine only? Unless I
misssed something in the process? Thank you for all your help in this
matter!
