OK;what do you want it to do?Type anything you like in there with /? after it-that
gets the right command&syntax back.DONT type Format or add switch /s after***
anything yet.You can't boot into windows,tho you can try...win.Her's some useful
commands to try & sort out a crash.SCANDISK/-# the disk drive for faults/errors;
type SCANDISK C.or I use scandisk/all to # files,reg,&disk surface:try to start afta
by ejecting floppy...hit CTRL ALT DELETE@same time to take it thru start sequence
again. SCANREG/ is another to try /?---/FIX---/comment----/RESTORE.(/FIX
and or /RESTORE )are your first &best option.Careful of that A prompt;it's the DOS
prompt,can do irreperable damage with incorrect command.I've given you SAFE
commands to FIX the system;not erase it!

What kind of OS are you trying to boot up, and what kind of bootup disk are you using?
