    Hello,

    I'm not able to check the system Files. I got a BSOD and can't overcome it by any F8 option. I parallel installed Windows XP x64 on Windows.0 in a virtualbox VM, to inspect my options to resolve the BSOD.

    I'm not able to issue any command in the Recovery Console other than those that are listed by typing HELP.
