cannot access recovery console

hp recovery console January 29, 2009 at 15:50:01
Specs: Windows XP
after cloning the drive, i couldn't access recovery console using the f10 key. the machine wouldnt boot to windows and i didnt have recovery cds. the partition was still being seen by computer. i used a copy of ubcd to explore drive and fix issue. i ran fixmbr on drive and then set recovery console to the active drive. when i restarted the computer, it booted right into the recovery console. ran a recovery without issue. hope this helps somebody else out. i was stumped for awhile with this one.

If you can, you should make the recovery disks. If the hard drive goes out you will be SOL.
