    How can I boot into a real DOS mode before Windows XP boots?

    I am not talking about the recovery console but real DOS.

    Can this be done?

    I need to knw because I have a CD-ROM firmware which can only be flashed under DOS :(

    XP is not built on a DOS layer, but you can create a bootable floppy and put the firmware update on there. Alternatively, you can hit F8 as your system boots and tell it to go to Safe Mode with Command Prompt.
