Ha. There's the kicker. Which ones to remove? First, you should know about a nifty util called ERD commander. You can find an eval download of it on the web. It lets you get to a command line in NTFS if you need.

I would completely duplicate all entries in your boot.ini file. Effectively doubling the options you have. Then take the originals out one at a time until you find the right one. Then delete the duplicates.

Arcpath naming conventions have tissue rejection problems in my brain. Never can memorize those things.
