The Recovery Console is a command line tool much like DOS. It is a valuable tool for troubleshooting or fixing Windows XP booting issues. The recovery Console can be used for other purposes such as:

1) Copy, rename or replacing system files and folders
2) Create and format addition drive partitions
3) Enable or disable services
4) Repair the file system

While you can always access the Recovery Console from the Windows XP CD, a better option is to go ahead and install it on to the operating system for quick access when needed. You will need about 7 megabytes of available hard disk space.
Here's how you can install the System Recovery tool:

Insert your Windows XP CD in to your CD-ROM
Once the installation options are displayed, click Exit
Go to Start>> Run. Type in : {E}:\i386\winnt32.exe /cmdcons (replace the "E" in the command line with your CD-ROM's drive letter).

Press Enter on your keyboard
Follow the onscreen prompts to install the Recovery Console
Restart your computer

Hope this will help you.
