Recovery Console appears to be one of the less "talked about" environment for booting.

I just found this:

Dean Adams has created a "package" with everything needed to create a Recovery Console CD from the dowloadable .exe from Microsoft originally intended to create the (in)famous 6 boot floppies.

Direct download:

From the readme.htm:
How To Make A Windows XP Bootable Recovery Console CD

For a number of years now, many brand name manufacturers have included a "recovery" CD or they store customized install files on a hidden partition instead of supplying a genuine Windows XP install CD. Recovery CDs typically aren't very useful. While they can get a system back up and running again, you could lose all your data in the process. Recovery CDs and hidden partitions are more of a convenience for the tech support department than they are for the user.

Many people might not be aware that a complete install CD is not required to access the Windows XP Recovery Console. Although one can download the install floppy disks that contain the files needed to run the Recovery Console, waiting for six floppy disks to load is tedious. Creating a bootable Recovery Console CD, using the files from these disks, is a fairly straightforward project.


RecoveryCD.bat does the grunt work of actually creating the Recovery Console CD. The only thing you must add is the file to be downloaded from Microsoft.


And help for install and commands:
