Recovery Console

The Recovery Console feature provides you with a command-line interface that enables you to repair system problems via a limited set of commands. For example, you could use the Recovery Console to enable and disable services, repair a corrupted master boot record, or copy system files from a floppy disk or a CD-ROM. The Recovery Console gives you complete control over the repair process but can be dangerous if not used with caution. If you're not an advanced user, you should stay away from this set of commands. If you do plan to pursue use of the Recovery Console, I highly recommend consulting the Windows XP Resource Kit.

The Recovery Console can be used in two ways. It can be installed so that it always appears on the boot menu as an alternate OS. Or, you can use it by initiating a repair via the setup routine. Both of these methods are discussed in this section.
