I did search for info on this topic, but only found the tutorial, which explains installing the recovery console in NTLDR using the XP disk.
I'm wondering, specifically, how combofix manages to download (or update) and install the recovery console on the fly. I've haven't found anything online regarding a downloadable option, except for ISO images.
So, I'm really curious how combofix manages this, exactly what it _is_ managing (is it downloading the whole thing, or simply installing it from a limited set of files, and checking the web for updates?), and how I might replicate this functionality outside of combofix. I'd really like to roll out the recovery console to my domain workstations just as I would any other standard software installation.
Thanks for your help!
