    autoexec.bat is not really Windows its MS-DOS.
    MS-DOS is like a subsystem to older windows.
    Symbian does not have a subsystem that i know of.

    starter_background_apps.rsc & starter_non_critical_1.rsc.
    Is probably as close as you can get to running something at boot.
    You can edit them with RESEdit.

    About the alternate OS.
    Keep reading and learning then maybe one day you will make Your own OS.
    Something like that does not get made overnight, it takes time and determination.
