How to boot your computer in MS-DOS ?

Hi yall, I want to like upgrade my bios, but I need to boot in Command Prompt (ms-dos). I've tried v6.22 but that didn't work since it didn't find my drives... Now I was wondering if anyone knows which image to use and burn on cd, to boot ms-dos from there with recognition of my HDD.

Got Windows 7 Ultimate [RC] + Windows Vista Ultimate + Windows 2005 Media Center & Windows XP Professional SP3, running on my system... My Bios is Phoenix v1.1 ...

I'm seriously hoping someone can help me, I'm going crazy cause nothing works

restart your computer, press and hold F8. you'll get onscreen instructions from there

Already tried, it just gives me startup options like safe mode and stuff, but nothing about command prompt

Yeah, it's really the worst provider of bios, there's nothing on their site, and they have malware on it

Re: How to boot your computer in MS-DOS ?

it looks like an OEM model motherboard. Look on your computer manufacturer's website

Re: How to boot your computer in MS-DOS ?

Start ---> Run --> Type cmd. You should get DOS
Then navigate to the folder where you have the bios file and run it.
Can't understand why you would need to run it from DOS though. Just run in MS DOS mode in XP or Vista

If you're not paying for something, then you're the product.

Wouldn't that risk your bios getting messed up? All sites say you need to do ms dos when booting up?
