Microsoft has recently disallowed the use of rc.iso to create a Recovery Console disk. The process to make a Recovery Console CD is not for the faint-hearted, but our very own Artellos has created a nifty tool called ARCDC to create a recovery console disk. Please follow these instructions to custom create a recovery CD.
Download ARCDC from Artellos.com.
- Double click ARCDC.exe
- Follow the dialog until you see 6 options. Please pick: XP Professional SP2 & SP3 or XP Home SP2 & SP3, depending on which version of XP you have. Media Center users should use the Professional option.
- You will see a few dos screens flash by, this is normal.
- Next you will be able to choose to add extra files. Select Use Default Files.
- The last window will allow you to burn the disk using BurnCDCC
Including SP2 & SP3 should get rid of the pci.sys error.

What is happening is that your XP disc needs a certain file that is included in SP2. Since SP2 isn't on the CD, it throws the bluescreen. Adding SP2 onto the CD (called slipstreaming) will allow you to boot to the CD just fine. Let us know how it goes!
