Win Command

When in DOS mode trying to get back into Windows 98se using the following does not work:

c:\Windows>win (i.e. typing in win at the prompt)

but system hangs, then Windows Protection error after a long time.

Please note this is after rebooting into DOS and not using MS DOS Prompt.

Alt+Ctrl+Delete reboots successfully into Windows.

Any ideas please? Could it be that I also have a Controller card with it's own BIOS, with another HD and Win 98 on it?

How have you entered DOS mode? For pure DOS, you will need to enter safe mode and select option 5 Command Prompt. From here you can enter the directories or get back to the C:\> and type in WIN which will get you back to Windows.
If using DOS from a Windows Startup floppy, I have never bothered to work it out (assuming it is possible), as it is quicker to press Ctrl/Alt/Del to reboot into Windows.
DOS was never my strongpoint.
