you can write out a simple one at the prompt that is there when you boot.

copy con autoexec.bat

prompt $p$g



The copy con autoexec.bat starts the creation, and ^z finishes. The ^z is an end of file mark, get it by using cntrl-z or press f6 key.

But check to see if you have an autoexec.bak and config.bak, or .000 .001 etc

good luck!
