Goldie,

It sounds as if you're using a OEM Restore CD and not the Retail Windows XP
CD-ROM. If that's the case, you use the Windows XP startup disks in order to
enter the Console. Another option is to install Recovery Console as a
startup option (if Windows XP is running well)

How to install and use the Recovery Console in Windows XP:
