Hi Robbie

You can use recovery console when you are experiencing certain problems in your operating system and you do not want to install a fresh copy.

If you are having windows as an operating system then you can use recovery console to recover your computer and fixing the problems you were having

Installing the recovery console:-

You can do so by inserting a windows XP compact disk.

1. After inserting the disk restart your computer and when you boot from the CD you will have to press any key to boot from that CD.

2. After that your computer will start inspecting the hardware’s configuration.

3. Then the windows setup will load the new files which will be used in recovery.

4. Then it will ask you to whether install a fresh copy of windows or to repair it .then press R.

5. Now you will have to choose windows installation


So type 1 and press enter.

Then you will have to type your administrator password so type the password and press enter.

If you don’t know your password then please press enter.
