Computer no boot.

A) bootcfg

B) bootvis

C) fixboot

D) ntdetect

E) minesweeper

The answer: A) bootcfg

An incorrect boot.ini file can cause a perfectly healthy Windows configuration to stop booting, but bootcfg can easily rebuild the file. Once you boot to the Windows XP Recovery Console, it only takes bootcfg a few minutes to scan the hard drive and rebuild the boot.ini file.
