    i just reinstalled winxp, and now i get a message:

    Invalid BOOT.INI file
    Booting from C:\windows

    I looked for my boot.ini file on my c: drive, but it's just not there. My computer boots even with this error, but how can I get rid of it?

    Thanks

    Its a hidden, system, read-only file. Explorer is probably set to hid those files.
