Found this in another forum if it helps at all - "I do not have the cmdcons file either on my Windows XP Professional disk or on any of my hard drives. Can anyone tell me where I can get a copy so I can use the Recovery Console?"
"i dont think that cmdcons is a file. i believe it is a command line command if u look at the following:
u are executing the winnt32.exe file with a command line switch of /cmdcons. i think that is right or i might just be talking smack. not completely sure."
