Windows 2008 Boot.ini

A good point to note is that Windows 2008 Server does not use the boot.ini file anymore to determine which partition to boot from. This is now all completed via the command line utility bcdedit.exe

For example if you need to rename your primary boot partition to be displayed when Windows starts you can use this command

bcdedit /set {current} description "Windows 2008 Server Primary"

There is a lot more to this utility but worth knowing that it is there!
