Hi,
I was working in the recovery console(BOOTCFG /REBUILD))and I can't fgure out how to delete entries on the boot list.
I currently have 11 entries on it. I tried DEL but that didn't work. Thanx in advance!

There are several ways that I know of:

a. Using the bootcfg command results in an edited boot.ini.

b. Manually, How to edit the Boot.ini file in Windows XP - http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?...kb;en-us;289022

c. The msconfig tool can also be used to somewhat edit the boot.ini file. Removing the invalid entries from Boot.ini - http://windowsxp.mvps.org/bootopt.htm
