I have a similar proble to posting :
http://www.geekstogo...ll-t275492.html

I tried to follow the instructions for the recovery module as listed in post, but my access is denied in the recovery console as I tried to add the tmp directory

I tried the logon command to see if I could sign on as an admin, but no windows profiles were listed.

I was allowed to chkdsk /r in the recovery console as was mentioned in post
http://www.geekstogo...rly-t40331.html
Some repairs to disk were made, but windows will still not run.

Any idea of how I can gain access as an admin if I am not propted to do so that I can try to reinstall the missing and corrupt files?

THanks

Do you have the admin password? If not, you cannot use the recovery console.

Thanks for your help. I do not believe that there is an admin password set up on the machine, but if I did set one on this machine I do know what it would be. So, how do I access the admin logon function? I tried the logon command at the C:> prompt in the recovery module, but no request for a password.
Thanks again
