Re: How to run Recovery with XP cd

Although you can run the Recovery Console by starting directly from the Windows XP CD, it is generally more convenient to set it up as a startup option on your startup menu. Anyways, here is how to run Recovery on XP CD:-
  • Insert the Windows XP startup disk into the floppy disk drive, or insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.

  • Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted.

  • When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.

  • If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console.

  • When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.

  • At the command prompt, type the appropriate commands to diagnose and repair your Windows XP installation.For information about a specific command, type help command name at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.

  • To exit the Recovery Console and restart the computer, type exit at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.

Re: How to run Recovery with XP cd

The Recovery Console is particularly useful if you have to repair your computer by copying a file from a disk or CD-ROM to your hard disk, or if you have to reconfigure a service that is preventing your computer from starting correctly. You can use the Recovery Console commands to change file/folder attributes, run batch files, change the boot configuration, run chkdsk to repair disk problems, copy and delete files, disable and enable services,etc..

After Windows XP is installed on your computer, to start the computer and use the Recovery Console you require the Windows XP startup disks or the Windows XP CD-ROM.When you use the Recovery Console, you are working at a special command prompt instead of the ordinary Windows command prompt. The Recovery Console has its own command interpreter. To enter this command interpreter, you are prompted by Recovery Console to type the local Administrator password.

To install the Recovery Console, follow these steps:
  • Insert the Windows XP CD into the CD-ROM drive.
  • Click Start, and then click Run.
  • In the Open box, type d:\i386\winnt32.exe /cmdcons where d is the drive letter for the CD-ROM drive. In the case of 'Microsoft Windows XP Professional x64 Edition, type d:\amd64\winnt32.exe /cmdcons where d is the drive letter for the CD-ROM drive.
  • A Windows Setup Dialog Box appears. The Windows Setup Dialog Box describes the Recovery Console option. To confirm the installation, click Yes.
  • Restart the computer. The next time that you start your computer, "Microsoft Windows Recovery Console" appears on the startup menu.
