    I'm using windows XP media edition. Is there a way to start with command prompt only? When I restart and push F8, the only option I get (for using command prompt) is "Safe Mode With Command Prompt". Is there a way to get command prompt only?:confused:

    Not from a straight boot to XP, you would have to have a boot disk to do this.

    You can also get to a dos command prompt from xp. Start > run > type cmd and you have your dos command line.

    There is no "DOS" in 2K/XP/Vista, only an MS-DOS emulation. There is no way to boot to a command prompt with any of these environments.
