    You can come across "Missing command interpreter" on Samsung desktop powered by Windows XP with regard to several reasons. You can analyze with the most probable cases as mentioned below to look for a resolution. The non bootable CD is the most probable reason for this issue. There can some issues with the set up of boot options which is yet another reason. Certain files like io.sys, msdos.sys, command.com, or drvspace.bin can be missing which leads to this issue. These files when in the corrupted status also result in the above mentioned problem. One of the other probable reasons is the presence of a bad hard drive.
