default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(0)C:\DOS
or

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" /fastdetect
C:\DOS\;

Here's a boot.ini from 2000; different bootsectors were required

[boot loader]
timeout=5
default=c:\bootsect.w40
[Operating Systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINNT="Windows NT Server Version 4.00"
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINNT="Windows NT Server Version 4.00
[VGA mode]" /basevideo /sos

C:\bootsect.w40="Microsoft Windows" /win95
c:\bootsect.dos="MS DOS" /win95dos

Bah, and indeed Humbug.

If the menu entry is like this:

multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\DOS="MS-DOS 6.22" /w95dos

The value for the `default`, would be the key name of the menu entry. i.e.
the boot path. The one before the `=` character. So it should be:

default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\DOS
