Welcome

yourHD>Library>Preferences>SystemConfiguration
and it should be the 3rd .plist

Hope you find yours there

Can't find “com.apple.Boot.plist”
would be a much better title. Then you can say "Help, please!" in your post.

What if everyone used such a generic title? Please be descriptive.

You can identify your OS version. Then maybe others will have a valuable clue about how to help.

My guess is that you're looking in the Library folder in your home directory. There are two Library folders - one in your home directory and one for the system. If you go to the system one (found at /Library or Your HD > Library), it's there. Perhaps the more important question is why are you looking for this file?
