I recommend you to run System Restore.

It is a recovery tool that helps you to undo changes through the OS.

It is an "undo" element for the largest significant components of Microsoft Windows.

Used to return essential settings and files, like system files, registry keys, drivers and installed programs, reverse to earlier settings and version. It is considered as a step by step wizard.

Make it really simple to decide a point in the history, called a restore point, to revisit your vital settings and file.

Hi there user:

You can use the data recovery software for this problem.

Lucky for you, it’s now available to download.

NTFS Recovery is a utility that recovers formatted or damaged disk.

With this, no need for you to babysit the unit just to learn how to manually recover it.

Also you can partition your system easily using this recovery software to avoid getting confuse of each data.

Thank you for posting your query.

Best regards,

The boot.ini file is important because this file identifies to what folder in which partition and in which drive your Windows XP or Windows Vista is located.

This file can be damaged, corrupted, or even deleted and will surely be brought to your attention if any of these happens.

If you encounter a problem with the boot.ini file, here’s how you can fix it:

  • Load and boot your computer using the Windows XP CD.
  • When the Windows XP Setup screen appears, press R to enter the Recovery Console.
  • When the Recovery Console prompt appears, enter the command without quotes “bootcfg /rebuild” and then hit Enter.
  • Press Y when prompted by “Add installation to boot list? (Yes/No/All)” and then press Enter.
  • When prompted by “Enter Load Identifier”, enter the name of the operating system like for example Windows XP Home Edition or Windows XP Professional. Press Enter after that.
  • When prompted by “Enter OS Load options”, enter without quotes “/Fastdetect” and then press Enter.
  • And then finally, eject the Windows XP CD, type without quotes “exit” and then press Enter. This will now restart your computer.
