If you are using Microsoft Windows XP and you want to create a password recovery disk, unfortunately, it is not possible and it is not needed. The reason is that the Windows XP setup CD itself serves as your system repair disc or password recovery disk. There is no separate process for creating a system repair disc like with Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8.x, and Windows 10.

If your computer is not working properly and you need to do a repair, you need to access “Recovery Console” within the Windows XP setup CD to perform different recovery commands. If none of the commands help fix the problem, you’ll need to reinstall Windows XP.

If you can’t access your Windows XP setup CD with your optical drive, you can create a bootable USB flash drive using Rufus but you need to create an ISO image of your Windows XP setup CD. To access the Recovery Console so you can fix your computer, insert your Windows XP setup CD on your optical drive then boot your computer from the optical drive.

Press any key when you are prompted to boot from the CD. In the “Welcome to Setup” screen, press “R” to open Recovery Console then enter your administrator password. In the command prompt, the following commands might help fix your computer:

  • bootcfg /rebuild
  • chkdsk /r /f
  • fixboot

Press Enter after each command. See if this works.
