the repairing procedure at winXP didn`t work, so I have faulty entries in the winXP bootmenue which are likely in the bootsector ----a transfer of the running system with backup and restore with true image to an other drive shows the same.
Is there any tool for editing these entries?
Starting the booting now I always have to timely select the proper entry.
Thanks

Boot menu entries for XP are stored in a hidden system file called boot.ini. You do not need any other tool to repair it except a Windows XP media (CD or USB flash disk). Go to https://abt.cm/1PRnX2N and follow the tutorial.

The easiest way is to boot into XP, go to Start/Run and type msconfig and press enter. Go to the Boot.ini tab and press check all boot paths. If there are any boot paths that are not valid, it will ask if you want to remove them.
