NT Workstation Booting

by curlergirl In reply to NT Workstation Booting

There is no such thing as booting to a command prompt in NT. You can, however, use an MS-DOS or Win95 boot disk to boot the workstation - but you will only be able to access partitions that are formatted with FAT, not NTFS. If you need to boot andaccess NTFS partitions, there is a utility called NTFSDOS that is available from www.winternals.com. Hope this helps!

Just a thought, we have a machine on our network, that is set up to duel boot. Upon restarting NT from the normal shutdown menu, we get the boot menu, and on the menu is an option to boot to MS Dos. However, as was already mentioned, if the drivesare NTFS DOS can not see them, this is part of the Security of an NTFS Partition. Good luck.
