Boot.ini tab is missing in MSCONFIG?

When you start MSCONFIG.EXE (System Configuration utility), the BOOT.INI tab which usually appears, may be missing.

This may simply be a file permissions issue. You can verify that by typing C:\Boot.ini in Start, Run dialog. If you get Access Denied or similar error, that explains the problem.

Here is another obscure possibility:

  • Open Regedit and navigate to:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\MSConfig

  • Backup the key by exporting it to a REG file

  • In the right-pane, delete the value named Boot.ini  (if found)

  • Close Registry Editor and open MSCONFIG.
