I can't get a system to restart in DOS mode. I tried using MSconfig and
setting "nogui" I tried interrupting a restart with F8 and going to
safe/DOS prompt, even if I do a CHKDSK /F when the system restarts it will
not do the DOS checkdsk function. Rather than going to DOS it does another
restart during boot and goes to GUI mode.



Any ideas or help is appreciated!



This is windows XP pro build 2006 - SP1

There is no DOS in WinXP therefore you can't "...restart in DOS mode."

To be 100% technically correct I want to start in "safe mode with command
prompt"



I don't want a GUI interface, I want to be able to run CHKDSK with the "/F"
Parameter!



Now any help??

when you say you interrupt the restart with F8, keep trying, sometimes
timing is everything. As soon as the screen goes black, tap that F8 key
repeatedly (rapidly)

You can install the Recovery Console and then every restart
will offer the boot option of either the Windows with GUI or
just the command-line interface.

When you boot, start tapping the F8 key to get to the safe mode menu.
About 1 time per second.

You might try tapping F5, which will give you a menu of options.

Thanks, but I tried that, and I tried F8 while booting. I also tried
issuing a chkdsk /F which causes the message that the next reboot will do
the chkdsk. In all cases once the reboot starts, it automatically causes a
second reboot which goes to the GUI mode. I never get to a command prompt
and can't run a chkdsk /F



Any other ideas??? Or ideas on what would cause this?



PS... I have scanned with Norton anti-virus with up-to-date signatures.

I say again, install the Recovery Console.
see
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;307654
How to install and use...
This will create dual boot system so you can boot GUI XP or
command prompt only XP.
