Hi CEans,

May be some of the CEans Knows this.But i am putting this question ,that is anyone tried to repair the Windows XP from Recovery console
When you Boot your System from the CD We have the option to either install a fresh copy of windows ,or to repair the existing installation by repairing from recovery console
by pressing R
After that it open the command prompt screen where we can get the list of command by Help

and for the respective command to understand we can use command name space /?
here some commands are like..fixboot,fixmbr,chkdsk commands
I tried for FixMBR and it worked 😀

If any CEans knows exactly all commands how they works please post here 😀 Posted in: #Gadgets

Yeah I too tried using the recovery console for XP once. Actually my start up failed because of some reason but I wasn't knowing the exact command to fix it up. Finally I installed a fresh copy of the operating system.
It'll really be good if we can have a list of all such commands along with their explanation.

if this happens again firstly do "chkdsk /r" it fixes the error in the respective volume and do FIXMBR to write a new Master Boot Record 😀
