    Anyone any idea how to install DOS on a system that has windows 7 already
    installed? The idea is: When I turn my computer on, it will start in DOS so
    it shows C:> I’ve looked everywhere, but since Windows 7 doesn’t have a
    boot.ini, it can’t be edited, nor does windows 7 start via autoexec.bat or
    command com like NT-bases OS’s. Any help is welcome.

    You can setup a console window to open on startup in fullscreen, but that’s
    the closest you can get. I’d recommend having a shortcut run so you can
    open the console in non-fullscreen mode via the actual application. Also,
    you can Alt+Tab out! … but yeah, that’s it. If you want to have some DOS
    commands that were removed, I guess you’d have to download the .com files.
