I just built a new computer and set the bios but I can't get pass the
following information:

A:\>echo off

Looks like some kind of error in your autoexec.bat file or whatever startup
file you're using on your system. It looks like it's changing to the "X"
drive, whatever that is. That file seems to have some problem in it - or
indirectly that's the problem.

Does the boot drive have an operating system on it, if so, what is it? It
also sounds like the config.sys and\or autoexec.bat has some bad lines in
them.

Your AUTOEXEC.BAT file on your A: drive is looking for three executables
that aren't there. Most likely, these executables were expected to be on
your X: drive--ostensibly, your CD-ROM drive.

Is it possible that you're using a bootable CD-ROM, and you placed the disc
in the wrong optical device? Try the other one.

Post your AUTOEXEC.BAT file, and tell us what you're attempting to do.
