I've learned the hard way to backup, I know backup often and i also have the recovery console installed in my machine, just in case :whistling:

The thing is, recovery console came installed on my machine when it was SP1, when SP2 came out, i installed it and never thought of the recovery console until today. My machine did not come with a win XP CD (it's a compaq presario SR1020LA) so i made one following this guide using the i386 folder from C:\WINDOWS\

My question is the following: when i upgraded to SP2 did my recovery console also upgrade? and if not, Should i run E:\i386\winnt32.exe /cmdcons to install the recovery console from my XP CD that has SP2 on it?

My own view is that your existing installed Recovery Console will work just fine if needed, even though you've since installed SP2. It's only a tool for system access, so as long as it still runs and recognises valid commands I see no need to re-install it because of the SP2 update.

It wouldn't do any harm to run it just for confirmation that it's okay and doesn't generate any unwelcome error messages. If it does, then by all means re-install it.
