I started the computer up one morning and encountered the error in the topic during loading. I had left my computer on and don't know what may have happened to cause it to shut down.
Hoping someone can help me either restore a Boot file to eliminate this issue or create one. I have no problem if it involves having to start auto loads from scratch or if it is as if its the first time the computer loaded with no settings. I am just unable to use any cd's to accomplish this as my dvd drive took a trip south and I don't have a replacement at this time.
XP Pro 5.1 Build 2600
NOTE: There are a plethora of firmware/hardware/driver updates I need to get done and thought maybe I'd tackle that this Sunday afternoon. Figured I'd wait until I get this resolved and then go from there.
If there is any information needed besides this, let me know. I am immediately online and get notification to my phone upon email notification so response time will only be a few minutes.
Thank you for your time.
UPDATE: from seeing other topics, this may be needed.
Contents of boot.ini
[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
That is it.
