Hey all

Could someone tell me how to get the option of either booting up XP or going to a DOS prompt when you first power on. I did have it before but I've forgotten how to do it.

Cheers
Mark

To the best of my knowledge there is no way possible to do that. What are you tring to do this for. Might be another way.

The way to do that with W2K/XP is by a dual boot. I setup my machines with FAT32 on the boot volume, then put MS-DOS on as my secondary boot. Very handy, and I can boot to DOS and do things like GHOST backups without a floppy.

No there def is cos I had the option on my last install of xp. It was just a case of editing the boot or config file I can't remember. So I can go to DOS without windows loading up.
