Dos Prompt

I just purchased an e-machine. However, I am forced to type "win" from a dos prompt in order to get into Windows. Is there any way I can set my machine so that it will go right into Windows?

Thanks.

In your autoexec.bat file add the following lines
@echo off
c:\windows\win.com

Sure. When your computer starts up and you get that C:\, type:
edit c:\autoexec.bat
A DOS text editor will come up. In the DOS editor, type:

@echo off          
C:\Windows\win.com

What "@echo off" does is not display any dos  commands, that line might be there in the autoexec.bat already. If it is, ignore that line.
And. the last line will boot up Windows on startup.
Ignore any other command in autoexec. If you remove any other lines some devices or programs may not start up which you might need.

In your c:\msdos.sys file,the

BootMulti=1
BootGUI=1
