The default boot.ini path on the Android.

/storage/internal/boot.ini /internal/boot.ini
ORDOID-XU4 ~ Android 4.4.4 (v6.1)
ODROID-C0/1+ ~ Android 4.4.4 (v3.9)
ODROID-C2 ~ Android Marshmallow (v3.9) Android Marshmallow (v4.0) ~

Above path is on the ODROID. On the host PC, boot.ini path is maybe /media/<user_ide>/VFAT/boot.ini in the ubuntu.
