Windows XP is not DOS based so you cannot go to DOS. You can go to the Command Prompt in safe mode. When starting you computer press F8. When the Boot Menu appears select Safe mode with command prompt only.
If the power is out how are you going to do anything, in safe mode or not?
By the way..:thumbsup: to BC

winnt.exe or winnt32.exe will start the install/repair process if they're in your path statement. Try 'em both - I can't remember the requirements for using each of them off-hand :thumbsup:
