Go to config menu then Ports and Pins then Inputs then scroll to E-Stop and change the active state.

You are changing the active state? or trying to disable the E-Stop?
If the former attach your xml and I will have a look, if the latter then that is correct as it is meant to be not possible to run without an E-Stop so Mach will not allow you to disable the E-Stop input.
