boot/cfg is frequently used to scan a computer for other OS (NT, W2K, XP) installations and add them to the boot.ini...

I note the M$ article that mentions you use it to resolve your current problem; not a path I would have gone... Try the method-3 approach in that same KB?

Also have a read of the suggestions at:

One possible resolution is to do a Repair installation - the one that doesn't lose data etc... It is one of the later suggestions in the above link. And this link tells you how to do it very clearly too; read it very carefully first - before you go this path...

Be careful to follow the instructions carefully - especially step #3. DO NOT use Recovery Console; but move onto step #5

But first try some of the earlier ideas in the pcsupport link...

Can you explain what happend originally; why you have this problem - what happend first?

Did you change anything in the system at all - afterwhich the problems appeared?

mmm - Without knowing what happend immediately prior to (before...) the problem appeared it's not easy to know what to suggest... Did you at any time re-install the OS itself - for whatever reason?
