Windows 7: corrupt xp boot ini after 7 install

Thanks for the update,

That throws a lot of people - it looks like a partition because of the rectangular depiction in Disk Management.

That's why I set it up as partition 2 in boot.ini.

Unallocated space is unused space that has not been partitioned.

Free space is unused space within a partition.

Hope it helps.

Then get the one I posted earlier and copy and paste directly onto the F: partition.
Thanks SIW2. Good call as usual.
