Hello there,

I have come across this problem my self on some of the work station in my company, this occurs when the autoexec.nt or the confignt is missing or corrupt what you will have to do is expand the files, here is the command line prompt for you.

:i386autoexec.nt_ C:windowssystem32autoexec.nt or what ever file name it is telling you that can not be accessed in 16 bit mode

make sure that you have your windows CD or the location of the i386 if it is on a network share.

Hope that this solves your problem.

Regards

Darren
