Let's create a bootable Recovery Console and run the commands.
Please go here
and create a Recovery Console CD.
Just click the link provided there to download the recovery_console_cd.zip and unzip that to the desktop of your clean computer.
Then inside the recovery_console_cd folder that created locate and click on the IE icon titled Readme. This will open a webpage, which will provide the simple steps you will need to follow, as well as a clickable link to go to the MS download page where you can select the BootDisk file download appropriate for your operating system.
For example, for an XP SP2 Home Edition you would be downloading WindowsXP-KB310994-SP2-Home-BootDisk-ENU.exe.
For emergency boot disk uses, as well as to access the Recovery Console, the SP2 version can also be used on systems that have the SP3 upgrade.
- Insert the CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.
- If your PC is not booting from the CD, you need to change the boot order:
- Restart your PC
- As soon as you get an image, press the Setup key. This is usually F2, or Del. On some machines the key can also be a different one. It should, however, be stated on the screen which key is the setup key.
- Once you enter the computer's BIOS, use the arrow keys and tab key to move between elements. Press enter to select an item to change.
- Navigate to the tab, where you can set the boot order. It should be called Boot or Boot order
- The tab should now show your current boot order.
If the CD-drive is not at the top, please navigate to the CD-Rom drive with the keys arrows. Then move it to the top of the list. The keys for switching boot position are usually + to move up and - to move down. However they can be different, but they should be stated in the help, so that you can find them easily.
- Once the CD-drive is on top of the boot order, navigate to Exit and select Exit saving changes.
- Your PC should now boot from your CD.
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.
- When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
You must enter which Windows installation to log onto. Type 1 and press enter.
