yes the exit to dos option is no longer available. If you really cant do anything good with the windows dos prompt Try this

1. Get a diskette and copy all the system file by typing sys a:
2. Go to bios and change the boot sequence to a:
3. Boot from the diskeete and you will have the real dos mode.

By theway i am not sure if the F8 command is still available to bring up the boot menu. You can try that during bootup and press it and see if that anything happen.
