what, exactly, are you looking for? The comments you left on the two extant answers don't really explain the question to me :) –  warren Oct 27 '09 at 5:14

I think you're looking for "Administrator Mode" (or Elevated Mode) and not "Power Mode"
So, right-click the Command Prompt shortcut, and then click Run as administrator.
(Or: Win+R > Type: cmd > Ctrl+Shift+Enter)
And any bootable DOS disk will have the administrator rights.

not exactly what i was looking for but kinda solves my problem.. the bootable disk will have elevated rights for the current windows installation.. i want it to be any instalation –  Junaid Saeed May 21 '10 at 5:01

I don't quite understand what you're asking, but you cannot boot cmd.

Normal DOS (as opposed to abnormal :) is bootable because it is an operating system. When working under Windows you're merely using a feature that emulates DOS. But you cannot boot into it, and avoid Windows altogether.

Also, I don't recall anything called "DOS power mode".

its normal DOS which is bootable and overrides windows securities on files, thats why its called "Power Mode", the one we have in windows is "User Mode" –  King Aug 25 '09 at 8:53

Windows PowerShell is probably what you want.
