This will allow you to burn a Recovery Console cd
- Download the recovery_console_cd.zip from here file to your drive and unzip it to it's own folder.
- Download the correct floppy disk setup package for your operating system from Microsoft and save it to the folder you extracted the zip to.
- Rename the floppy disk setup package to Bootdisk.exe
- Insert a blank cd into your burner.
- Now just double click the RecoveryCD.bat file and follow the prompts to burn a cd that will allow you to boot to the recovery console.
Put disk in system that is not working and when it boots to the recovery console type in the following and let me know what happens.
ntldr /u C:\ntldr
Then press Enter
Type Exit and then Enter
Take out the cd and see if system will now boot on its own.

The command is not recognized. Type HELP for a list of supported commands. I typed HELP and do not see the ntldr anywhere listed.
So, what's the next step?

there is a space after ntldr, then a space after /u, with a Capital C for the drive. nothing....

Funny thing is, that when I put in the recovery cd, when it was loading the cd, it took a shorter amount of time to load than the XP cd. The XP kinds takes a little longer to get thru to the console. Do you think it might be missing a file or something within the CD?

I386 with other files loaded (is the NTLDR in here somewhere?)

asumming that the CD-ROM Drive is E: if not, it will be necessary to type in the correct Letter for the correct Drive.
copy e:\i386\ntldr c:\ press enter
copy e:\i386\ntdetect.com c:\ press enter

the system cannot find the file specified
Is there a way I can do this with a flash drive maybe??? If so, how would I direct computer to read to that drive? Is there a letter or something?

The same would go for the flash drive... you would replace the E with the letter of your flash drive. Is your system capable of booting from the flash drive?

So, now what can I do? I'm not sure if the CD has the necessary file located somewhere on it. Is there something I can look for on the CD that I should look for then?
I'm sure you're getting frustrated with this just by advising, you can only imagine how I feel actually do this. I feel like things go good when the cd is moving, but then i get to a point where everything just fails.....
