boot.ini problem

Guest

I get a message NTLDR is missing, when I go into msconfig I find that the
boot.ini is not there, where is the back up stored, and how can I use the
recovery console without an XP disk my computer came with XP preloaded.

[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(3)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]

this is a copy of the boot.ini I have tried but when I click check all boot
paths I get this message
It appears that the following line in the boot.ini file does not refer to a
valid operating system
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(3)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Home
Edition" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect

would you like to remove it from the boot.ini file

Obtain a BartPE boot disk, and run the command

Bootcfg /rebuild

from the Recovery Console prompt.

start/run, type:
HH mk:mad:MSITStore:%windir%\Help\bootcons.chm::/bootcons_bootcfg.htm

If the command 'bootcfg<space-frontslash>rebuild' is failing, the Recover
Console is not working correctly.

OK so what options do I have? Is there any way at all of replacing the
boot.ini in msconfig?

Yes, the Edit button lets you manually enter the path to your install, but
that would entail using the Recovery Console to run the MAP utility,
identifying the path you need. If you can't run bootcfg, I think we can
forget using MAP.

This is confusing to say the least. If NTLDR is missing how are you
booting the computer? If the computer cannot boot how are you using
msconfig to verify the boot.ini file?
