I have got into the recovery console from a disk (but it is not the windows disk, it only has the recovery console on it).
I have copied the file VGAEOM.FON to my memory stick, there is also a copy of it on the disk with the recovery console on.
I tried to copy the file from the E:/ and it said access denied.
I then tried to copy it from the disk, again Access denied.
Anything that I attempt (except CD _XXXX ) is denied.
I do not have the original disk to my XP (XP professional), it is a custom made computer and the guy that built it never gave us the disk. I cannot easily get ahold of a disk at this moment in time.
When I try and access folders on C:/ it comes up with "the system cannot find the file specified"
I know that the C:/ files are on there...
This is really frustrating me.
The recovery console does not prompt me to log in, I find this the cause of the Access Denied messages. Is there some kind of hidden prompt that can trigger the log in screen??
