  zeppman 15:42 05 Sep 10

I am trying to remove the Microsoft windows recovery console.I have got as far as deleting the cmdcons & cmldr files ( Step 4 below )but I cant find the boot.ini file ? I'm using XP Pro service pack 3.

Log in to Windows using your administrator account.

Open "My Computer." Click on "Tools" followed by "Folder Options" and "View."

Click on the "Show hidden files and folders" check box. Uncheck the "Hide protected operating system files" check box. Click "Yes" to confirm these changes.

Click on the "C:" drive to open it. Delete the folder "cmdcons" and the file "cmldr." Right-click on "boot.ini." Select "Properties," then uncheck "Read-only."

Right-click "boot.ini." Select "Open with..." and choose "Notepad." Delete the line "C:\CMDCONS\BOOTSECT.DAT="Microsoft Windows Recovery Console" /cmdcons."

Save the file and close Notepad.

Boot.ini is a file on the root of C:\ drive

I can see a boot Configuration settings.

I have deleted the "C:\CMDCONS\BOOTSECT.DAT="Microsoft Windows Recovery Console" /cmdcons." But when I try to save it I get a message

Cannot create the c:\boot.inifile.
Make sure the path and file name are correct.

To see hidden files:

On the Tools menu in Windows Explorer, click Folder Options.

Click the View tab.

Under Hidden files and folders, click Show hidden files and folders.

save as boot.ini
