Can't edit Menu.lst


Recommended Posts

Im putting together a usb multipass but everytime i go and try to alter the menu.lst file all I can see is


Same applies to the textfile i have the code written on

I've also tried various editors to read the file but having the same results

Any idea why this is happening??

My file looks like this before I boot the usb

color blue/green yellow/red white/magenta white/magenta
timeout 30

find --set-root /BOOTMGR
chainloader /BOOTMGR
savedefault --wait=2
title MRI BOOT (if first fails)
fallback 2
find --set-root --ignore-floppies /BOOTMGR
chainloader /BOOTMGR
