Boot to Windows Recovery Console

#1
I apologize if I missed a more current post regarding this question, but the only one I could find was dated 2006. I am hoping that with the software updates over the last four years, this situation has changed.

Is it possible to add a boot entry to run the Windows Recovery Console that is loaded locally on my WindowsXP installation? Thanks!

Theres a bug in Windows bootmgr. If you installed the recovery console and you're dual-booting XP with Vista/7 the working entry should "magically appear" in the boot menu. If not you'll haft to continue loading the recovery console with ntldr, which requires an XP/2k/2k3 entry.
