Hi, people !

Last night I got the missing ntdrl message and used my windows XP disk to copy that file into my hard drive. Until then, no problem.

It worked well and my computer was able to boot up. But then I saw a message saying that boot.ini is not able to find the files or something like this. So I'm wondering how I can edit boot.ini to look for the files in the right directory - that way I won't get that weird message anymore.

Also, can that boot.ini message put my PC in danger?
Thanks in advance!

Thank you
The boot.ini file is a hidden file.. the reason is that <a href="">Boot.ini </a> can be damaged or deleted for a number of reasons and will brought to your attention by an error message.
