There is no recovery console for those versions of Windows. The people at Acronis put directions relevant to XP on an article for Windows Vista (ugh).

1. Boot off of the CD.
2. Choose "Repair My Computer" in the bottom left hand corner.
3. Choose Command Prompt from the list of tools.
4. Run the command they specify for your architecture (32 or 64 bit).
