Specs: Windows XP
hi,my com has a missing file pci.sys, i tried to fix it using the recovery console, but then i'm being "access is denied". and i can't use SETcommands in the recoveryconsole and i cant log to the windows the allow setcommands.

"A tip for Home XP users that can save allot of headaches is to change a registery entry�


Locate this key in the registry�

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SeCEdit\Reg Values\MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/Windows NT/CurrentVersion/Setup/RecoveryConsole/SetCommand

Change the value type from 4 to 2.

1= Allow Wildcards
2= Allow all Paths
3= Allow Removable Media
4= No Copy Prompt

Doing so has the same effect as "Allow Floppy Copy And Access To All Drives And Folders" does with the group policy editor in XP Pro.

Also another usefull page for the recovery console is Description of the Windows XP Recovery Console


P.S. to enable the SET command in the recover console for home users locate the following key in the registry�

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Setup\RecoveryConsole


Change the SetCommand from 0(zero) to 1(one)

Once you make this change you will also need to boot into the recovery console and make the various policy changes.

type

set(space)AllowAllPaths(space)=(space)true (hit enter)

repeat for any(all) of the other 3

AllowWildCards
AllowRemovableMedia
NoCopyPrompt

If you want to get rid of that annoying prompt for Administrator password (especially if its none) change the second value under this key

SecurityLevel from 0(zero) to 1(one)

Hope this helps!" by Macker2.
but i dont understand what he meant when he says "Locate this key in the registry�

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SeCEdit\Reg Values\MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/Windows NT/CurrentVersion/Setup/RecoveryConsole/SetCommand" so help me pls.. thank you

Getting an Access Denied message in Recovery Console usually means you didn't type the right command or Windows can't find the folder path

Boot to the XP CD and run a Repair of the OS.
