Hello, what is your Operating System?
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

Moving this to Vista As I believe this has to do with reading the wrong drive.

Hi suckatcomputers :)

How do you open your command prompt? Also, do you open it with Admin Rights? Do you have any external, removable drives connected to your computer right now?

No external drives, no external devices. Never seen an 'X' drive on this computer before. Im opening command prompt through 'repair computer', 'open command prompt'. Im not opening as admin.

Ah, well this is entirely normal. When you open the command prompt, it'll open from the drive that is currently in use. When you are in the Recovery PE, you're on another partition, not the one where Windows (C:) is. And by default, the partition have the letter X:. So this situation is entirely normal, there's nothing to worry about here. If you want to run a command from the command prompt, you'll have to switch drive (go to the Windows drive) and then run your commands since the executables are stored there and not on the Recovery partition.

To switch to another drive (for example the C drive) type 'C:' without the quotes and press enter.

To change directories, type 'cd' (also without the quotes) followed by a space and then the directory path you want to change to (e.g. windows\system32).

Have you tried turning it off and on again?
