How do I edit my Boot.ini?
If you just want to Remove an Invalid Entry, you can use this method.
Before editing the Boot.ini file, you must remove the file attributes that Windows uses to protect the file from inadvertent changes. When the Boot.ini file is on an NTFS file system drive, you must be a member of the Administrators group on the computer to change its attributes. Use the following procedure to prepare the Boot.ini file for manual editing. This procedure removes the system, hidden, and read-only attributes of the file.
Refer to this MSKB article on using bootcfg.exe to (among other things) modify the boot.ini -- Description of the BOOTCFG Command and Its Uses.
