I restored my boot.ini file by opening windows pss folder and copying boot.ini to drive C. I renamed file and rebooted and everything went well except the boot.ini file disappeared. I retraced my steps and tried again. I rebooted with no problems except the boot.ini file disappears, vanishes. Temporarily I redo this proceedure each time I use my computer. I am using xp media center with service pack 3. Please advise.

dir /a:h for hidden files .
if you want to create boot.ini file then here is the format
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect
type this and save as boot.ini and copy it into c: drive and hide it.
