How to make a bootable CD to access the Recovery Console.

Please download ARCDC from Artellos.com.

    * Double click ARCDC.exe
    * Follow the dialog until you see 6 options. Please pick: Windows Professional SP2 & SP3
    * You will be prompted with a Terms of Use by Microsoft, please accept.
    * You will see a few DOS screens flash by, this is normal.
    * Next you will be able to choose to add extra files. Select the Default Files.
    * The last window will allow you to burn the disk using BurnCDCC

Your ISO is located on your desktop.

In order to boot from this CD you may need to change the boot order in the BIOS so that the CD-ROM is the first device in the boot order.

Once you have booted from the CD you will come to a screen which will offer the options to Install or Repair, select R.


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

The above link to ARCDC is no longer valid. Looks like the developer lost the domain or let it expire.

It happens...all the time...with links, IMO.  Not much we can do about that :).

Yes, I saw that but the link was active until recently. It helped people create a Recovery Console Disk using the utility. I was looking at this because another poster may be needing a Recovery CD. I have a link to the XP Recovery CD iso but I do not know if this would be permitted although quietman7 stated the policy toward Hirens and other iso's was changed.

In the first part of the topic TheNOObBuilder had offered to post the ISO file, not a link to a download.  This is what quietman7 was referring to.  Providing a link for a legal ISO download from a legitimate site there shouldn't be a problem.  But if you have any questions I would suggest sending a PM to quietman7 for clarification.

Dan is correct, John.

 

If you have a valid link to a download. feel free to post it.  All the links that I had are now not functioning...I would guess that the lack of support for XP today...has something to do with that.

I found a link to ARCDC on another forum. It can be downloaded here.

A bootable iso of a XP SP3 Recovery Console is available here.
