It seems like NASM cannot find the file to compile. Are you sure the file Boot1.asm exists?
Otherwise, if your file is boot1.asm, just change the first letter into a capital B, and it should find it, provided the file is located in the same directory as NASM.

Try using a full address (starting with the drive ID). That should make it more 'fool proof'.
