Strange Dos box appears on startup

  Dazwm 15:10 19 Oct 2003

I have my hardrive split in two with ME on 'C' and XP on 'D'. When I startup and choose ME a Dos box appears titled Finished-220015 and in the box it says "Bad command or file name". What is this and how do I get rid of it?

Can you actually boot into ME eventually. If so you need to delete the autoexec.bat file and the config.sys file and reboot. Windows doesn't need these files. If you delete them windows will make new basic files for you. If you don't want to delete them just rename them autoexec.old and config.old then if you get any problems you can rename them back to autoexec.bat and config.sys

Yes I just close down the box and it starts working. Where can I find these files to delete them?
