    How to use Recovery Console? (XP HE SP2)

    I bow to the wisdom of the list. How do you use the Recovery Console? I am trying to repair my son's computer (see my other Post: 475417) and thought to use the Recovery Console, but when I select that option when booting from the Window's disk (press R) and select the #1 Windows installation, it simply goes to a DOS C: prompt. What am I supposed to do then? I had assumed that the Recovery Console was some kind of automated process. I am at a loss. All help appreciated.

    I'm afraid the Recovery Console is about as far as you can get from being "automated". For instructions on how to install and use it see <!mskb=307654>Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 307654<!/mskb>

    The Recovery Console is intended to get you a way to do some basic maintenance on a system you can't get to boot into Windows. If what you were trying to do is a repair installation then skip that first step you'll be given the opportunity to do a repair later.
