If your second parameter in the AUTOEXEC.BAT GOTO command is not correctly capitalized or both parameters are not enclosed in quotation marks, your AUTOEXEC.BAT file may not be processed correctly.


When you use multiple-configuration menus, both expressions on either side of the double-equal sign (==) (for the GOTO command) must be enclosed in double-quotation marks. Also, the expression on the right side of the == is case sensitive.


Ensure your GOTO command in the AUTOEXEC.BAT file uses the proper syntax (noted above).
