Press any key to continue . . .
to something like

Code:
C:\>pause <something>
Press any key to exit . . .

In DOS, you could edit the io.sys file to change the string. If you know how to do that, we can talk.

You will also need to understand a hex editor.

I cannot assist you with this unless you have an advanced command of the OS or at least solid image technique.
