No boot.ini to edit in xp?

#1
I installed a dual boot xp/7 system but xp installed to a "winxp" folder instead of "windows".

I logged into 7 changed the folder name of winxp to windows and ran easy bcd to create a windows xp boot option.

I changed "windows" folder back to "winxp" and now I guess I have to edit the boot.ini file in windows xp to point to the "winxp" folder rather then "windows" but I cannot find boot.ini anywhere.

I know its a hidden system file and have everything turned on but boot.ini just does not exist.

Basically how do I get the boot menu option for "windows xp" to point to the "winxp" folder instead of the "windows" folder?

EasyBCD is hardcoded to only look for a windows folder that is why I had to rename winxp to windows.

Thanks

Addendum:

problem solved!

The new beta versions of easy bcd seem to have addressed the issue of different windows xp folder names.

Thanks alot.

Yep. EasyBCD 2.1 beta supports the \WINXP install directory name.

Glad we could help.
