Are you sure the command was

windows\system32\sam


Please, refer once more to my last post. It should be:
c:\windows\system32\config\sam
Bevery exact with this commands, in other way you may delete important windows files which can make more damage.

Are you typing correctly? In ther last post you've ommited "config" in the command.
copy c:\windows\system32\config\sam c:\windows\tmp\sam.bak

As you can see, the file is present.
Please check once more if you type in the command correctly.

Ok, if the recovery console can't do this, then maybe we should try a Linux Live CD.

Do you have any?
