Windows 7: Can you boot from the command line?

Can you boot from the command line?

This is an off topic thread because it concerns WinXP/2000 dual boot machine which are not booting. I can get to the Windows\ and Winnt command line of each but trying to figure out if I can boot from there.

If I try to boot regularly I get "missing operating system" Im trying the Windows 2000 disk and the repair option. It asks me to choose which 2000 instalation to repair, I choose and then it just takes me to D:\WINNT. I can view files and such with the dir command but can I boot from here?

I am a long time programmer and computer science professor, since 1979. I grew up with the command line and like it just fine. But Windows 7 seems to change the GUI way of doing things and not mess with the command line. Yesterday I was at the command prompt and went to C:\users\Stockwell and...
