I had xp running on my D400 laptop and wanted UBUNTU. I messed up the install (only installed half the operating system) I cannot remember what program i used i think it was called UNETBI? something like that. Anyway when i start my laptop i get 'MISSING OPERATING SYSTEM' I installed slax to my usb drive and accessed/backed up my files within windows. I am wondering how i can change the boot.ini file from the windows area so that it will boot ok again? It will not let me edit the file from within slax, only read. Please help Thanks alot.
