Use software to mount the iso with a drive letter, then just change the command "D:\i386\winnt32.exe /cmdcons" to reflect the drive letter the ISO image is mounted with. – Moab Jun 10 '12 at 0:44
download ComboFix as the first thing it wants to do is install local access to the recovery console at boot. Then, every time you start your computer, you get a 3 second menu where you can boot to the recovery console or continue as normal. – Bon Gart Jun 10 '12 at 4:31
