|On my Dell desktop, boot.ini is in the C:\boot_emt directory & there is a backup boot.ini.backup in C:\windows\pss|
If you can boot to a command prompt using F8, you can cd to c:\windows\pss & run
copy boot.ini.backup c\boot_emt
rename boot.ini.backup boot.ini
If that can't be done, boot with a boot disk that has a copy of boot.ini on it & copy that to c:\boot_emt
