6. Command Prompt > 6.3. Windows Recovery Console

Windows Recovery Console

The Windows Recovery Console (WRC) is a tool included with Windows XP, used to repair the operating system when it won't start, as well as perform some other tasks not otherwise possible from within Windows. For those accustomed to being able to boot into DOS to effect repairs in some earlier versions of Windows, the WRC is the Windows XP equivalent.

The WRC allows you to do the following:

  • Repair a Windows XP installation, including the filesystem boot sector, the Master Boot Record (MBR), and the Boot Manager configuration

  • Copy, rename, delete, or replace operating system files that otherwise cannot be modified while Windows is running

  • Enable or disable services or devices

  • Create and format hard drive partitions
