EVE Online: Trinity Patch Is Breaking Windows Machines

Posted Thu, Dec 06, 2007 by Aelryn

Nothing funny to say here. Having your boot.ini nuked really sucks.

The latest EVE Online patch is reportedly breaking Windows-based computers by deleting the boot.ini file. For those that don't know, that's the file you need for Windows to start. CCP is currently in heavy damage control mode, and downloading the patch now shouldn't give you any problems, but the customers affected by this probably won't be able to start voicing their opinion of it (or even know what exactly happened) for a few days.

If you have Windows AND upgraded EVE Online: Trinity Classic before 4 A.M. GMT to Premium using the content upgrade path then you MUST read this before doing anything else.

1. PLEASE DO NOT REBOOT YOUR COMPUTER
2. Check the root directory of your hard drive and see if you have a boot.ini file. Boot.ini file is normally hidden so you need to click Tools : Folder Options : View and select "Show hidden files and folders" and uncheck "Hide protected operating system files" to be able to see it. You can also check for the presence of this file by clicking Start : Control Panel : System : Advanced : Startup and Recovery : Settings (third button down). Windows will alert you if the boot.ini file is missing.
3. If boot.ini is still there then you are not affected and do not have to take any further steps.
4. If boot.ini is NOT there then please click here: FORUM LINK
