Boot.ini problem with XP

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!

Hi Boss ^^

Your PC is not in danger but you have to copy this file from your XP's CD to your system.
