I need to access a local network connected disk from the command prompt within the System Recovery Options menu on the Windows installation disc. My Net Use command works OK from the standard command prompt on the administrator id but it fails in the recovery environment:
Net Use T: \\EXTERNALDRIVE\Public\Backup-Music\American-Light-Music\Classics
Unfortunatly when I tried the command from the recovery environment I got:
Work Station Service has not been started Net Helpmsg 2138 .
I need advice on how to start the work station service from the command prompt.
