The Windows NT boot.ini file
on the hard drive
that has the active partition to load an OS (usually the C: drive). You can modify
this file should you want to change a few parameters
. Note that this is normally a hidden system file, so make sure you change it back after you modify the file.
Here is a copy of a WinNT Server 4.0 service pack 6 boot.ini file:
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT="Windows NT Server Version 4.00"
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT="Windows NT Server Version 4.00 [VGA mode]" /basevideo /sos
The timeout is the little timer that clicks down from 30 seconds until the system boots WinNT. Why wait so long? I have mine load after 7 seconds, which gives me enough time to select something else should I need to.
You can change the name of the operating system that is shown (Windows NT Server Version 4.00) to something more enjoyable (I wish this was Linux, but it's only WinNT)
If you want to play with the boot.ini, be careful. Back it up and have an emergency recovery disk, just in case. You can make subliminal messages for your boss (Rancid_Pickle really deserves a huge raise).
