GUI=0?  In msdos.sys it should say


and you also should do:

attrib +h +s +r msdos.sys

after editing it.

See http://www.contesting.com/articles/235 for more details.

If, after rebooting, it seems to be changed back to BootGUI=1 then the file
is being replaced, possibly during the boot process.  Search the hard disk
for MSDOS.DOS or similar and edit that file.
