Your boot.ini file is a hidden file in the root of your hard drive(c:\).You can edit the file with notepad.
I hope that answers your question.

(1) Open Windows Explorer.
(2) Select Tools->FolderOptions.
(3) Click on the View tab.
(4) Click the radial button "Show hidden files and folders."
(5) Clear the box "Hide file extensions for known file types."
(6) Clear the box that says "Hideprotected operating system files. [Recommended]"

You will see boot.ini in the root of the system partition (probably the C: drive).
