I am trying to run winxp recovery console but it isn't detecting my harddrive. I am using my dell OEM cd but it could be the wrong one because when I hit f6 to specify additional drivers it doesn't work. I have a few dells so maybe its the wrong cd.
So, I just entered my service tag online but I don't know what I'm supposed to download
Download the drivers for your chipset aka motherboard. Put them on a floppy or USB drive, insert, reboot your PC.

dev mgr, I can't boot into windows hence the need for recovery console. I'm only able to access the web using a linux live cd.
Thanks, here is my problem, I am using linux and I can't open an EXE. I have downloaded the file on my webserver which I have RDP access too, however it does not have a floppy disk so it wont let me extract the files.
