I went to the Microsoft Support article that you referenced and followed the directions.
After the Start > Run >(entered command) step I got the following message:
SETUP CANNOT CONTINUE BECAUSE THE VERSION OF WINDOWS ON YOUR COMPUTER IS NEWER THAN THE VERSION ON THE CD
So I said OK, the message window closed, and I ejected the disc.
AFTER ALL OF THIS, A NEW WINDOW OPENED, allowing me to install the Recovery Console, so I quickly put the disc back in, and exited the disc after the auto-run window appeared.
It appears to have successfully installed -- in spite of the red message error that initially appears.
I am writing back with my experience so other neophytes will know that if you proceed in spite of the error messages, that the Recovery Console can still be installed on the hard drive. (You may want to mention this along with the link you provide).
Thanks again for the help,
