    Open boot.ini in c:\ and add the following at the end of your Windows "/EXECUTE"

    It should look like this:

    [operating systems]
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(2)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Micro soft Windows XP Professional" /FASTDETECT /EXECUTE /USEPMTIMER

    Ensure there is no /NOEXECUTE in this file.

    I get the same error message when trying to set the # of drives except I get an error: -2 instead of -1. Is there a difference? I'm running XP.

    Hi, first post on here,
    Having same problem but.. my boot.ini has this:

    [boot loader]
    timeout=30
    default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOW S
    [operating systems]
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Micro soft Windows XP Home Edition" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect


    It has no execute, but I'm still getting the error..
    What needs to be done?

    Thanks,

    Blinzeln I'm reading it like this:

    The instructions* seemed to say that you need to delete the "/NOEXECUTE" paramater and replace it with "/EXECUTE"

    * From previous posting by Blazkowicz
    Open boot.ini in c:\ and add the following at the end of your Windows "/EXECUTE"

    It should look like this:

    [operating systems]
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(2)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Micro soft Windows XP Professional" /FASTDETECT /EXECUTE /USEPMTIMER

    Ensure there is no /NOEXECUTE in this file.

    I tried it but it doesnt work. Should I reboot it????
    MY OS is XP sp2. And my boot.ini file looks like this
    [boot loader]
    timeout=30
    default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOW S
    [operating systems]
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Micro soft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect
    Please Explain in detail what to change! Thanks in advance!

    Code:
    [boot loader]
    timeout=30
    default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
    [operating systems]
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect
    You need to read the directions a little closer. You should change the above to the following:

    Code:
    [boot loader]
    timeout=30
    default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
    [operating systems]
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /execute /fastdetect

    Yeah, that changes DEP settings to disabled. I don't know if it fixes anything or not, I was just helping mura figure out what to do. I never turn off DEP on any of my machines and have never had an issue with Alcohol or DTools Pro.
