how do i start winxp pro in dos mode?
what do u mean ?
winxp is another OS and so is DOS
apart from the fact that windows no longer has native dos support
i suppose ur talkin abt the "boot to command prompt" option when u press f8 during sustem bootup
u can no longer do this
u want to boot into dos ? ull need a bootable floppt ( just to get the command prompt)
apart from this i think u'll have to actually install a dos OS as a dual boot
im referring to the article in this months digit pg. 34 -how to replace windows logo in system properties.
one of the steps require you to restart the computer in dos mode
ive tried using command prompt but it dosent work that way
well i dunno what they are talkin abt
but i can give u another way to do it
press ctrl+alt+del to open task manager
shutdown explorer.exe from processes
then from there file=> new task(run) type cmd and press enter
and now try overwriting the file
when ur done ... close CMD
then go back to file=>run and then type in explorer.exe
do u mean starting XP setup in dos mode???
if u wanna do it.no need to get to do it in dos mode.i m not gonna tell u how to do it in windows mode. but still here is your solution when u r done in resource hacker don't save the file directly but select save as.then copy it to some easy address like say c:. create a dos bootable floppy by selecting the option while formatting it.BOOT! now copy the original file to a safe location. k. then copy the modified file which u saved at c: to ur system32 folder. this should do it!
