    Question Dumb Question on DOS

    Ok this may seem like kind of a newbie question, but I'm stuck. I'm trying to set my system up with MPFX. I figured out how to setup the autoexec to make this run, but how do I get rid of Win98? It still loads. Do I have to set up a partition or is there a way around it?

    Thumbs up

    Use a program called Tweak UI. It will have an option to start GUI automatically. Just uncheck this option and your system will just load into DOS. You cant really get rid of Windows, but you can work around it. If its possible, just use DOS ver 6.0 itself as your main operating system. It takes up alot less space on your hard disk. Just my 2 cents.

    or just do like this:
    attrib -r -s -h msdos.sys
    edit msdos.sys

    change the Bootgui=1
    to: Bootgui=0

    save the file and
    attrib +s +h +r msdos.sys

    Then restart the computer.
    Dos will only load now, no Win98.

    Get rid of windows and only have command.com and io.sys and a couple other of the necessary files to boot to dos prompt.

    My 69 cents
