Re-flashing the firmware of ADSL modem Auslinx AL-2007

I have corrupted firmware of my modem. I have read that it's possible to re-flash the firmware and I found a clone of my modem Billion Bipac 711CE. Here is a link to download this re-flashing utility . What do I need now is putting my PC in DOS. I tried to use both Windows 98SE and Windows XP floppy boot disks created under those mentioned above operating systems but I couldn't reach the C:\FLASH to which I have copied the content of folder DOS Flash Utility. I really faced the problem where to find clear DOS with USB drivers and perhaps LAN support too, because although modem has to be flashed via USB, the manufacturer advises to plug the network cable as well. Please help me to find that DOS as well as instructions on how to install it on CD or HDD.

I thought the XP install program had a "recovery console" that opened a DOS prompt, which should let you do what you are trying to do.

The floppy versions don't contain all of the features of the CD version because of disk space limitations. So try downloading a CD version of XP, burn it to a CD, boot from the CD, then try again.

Why Would you not just run CMD  and go to the Dos Command Prompt for XP or Win7

@DTHConsulting: I think he's saying he did that, but then the C drive is not seen as an available drive.

Above methods are not work. Recovery console can not run .bat files and re-flashing utility demands a clear DOS. So the question is open.

Try booting from an Ultimate Boot CD, and run your .bat file from there.
