Installing recovery console on a Service Pack >=2 Windows based computer

If you try to install the Recovery console into a Windows 2003 Server SP2 computer (or any windows service-packed computer) from the installation media, you may receive the  error:

“Setup cannot continue because the version of Windows on your computer is newer than the version on the CD.”

This happens because windows expects a Windows xxx SPyyy CD. If you don’t have a CD suitable for the service pack currently installed, follow this link.

If when running  FolderPath:\i386\winnt32.exe /cmdcons you receive the message “No valid system partitions were found” follow this other link as well.

As a plus, if you need the Recovery console commands syntax,  go here.
