    You'll probably need to do a repair install first, which should replace the
    OS files with the CD versions. You can then install the console, and
    re-apply updates.

    However, you may be able to get into the recovery console via booting from
    the CD, without installing.

    Hi

    If you have upgraded to SP2 and you are using a CD from a previous version
    of XP, you will see that error message. To install the Recovery Console in
    SP2, you will need to create a slipstreamed SP2 CD.

    You can download the SP2 file (266 MBs) from here:

    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=049C9DBE-3B8E-4F30-8245-9E368D3CDB5A&displaylang=en -
    or if you have a copy of the SP2 CD, you can copy the xpsp2.exe file from
    that CD onto your hard disk/partition and use that:

    then follow the directions in the following article to create a slipstreamed
    XP CD:
