When I try to install the recovery console as a boot option from my XP Pro CD
using the command E:\i386\winnt32.exe /cmdcons I get the message that
there is a newer version of windows on my HD than on the CD and it wont let
me continue. It seems that updating XP with SP1 and SP2 has caused this
problem. I suspect there is a registry edit to make but dont know what it
could be. Anyone know how to fix this problem?

Thanks

Did you upgraded your BIOS to SP2?

Either one of the following utilities makes slipstreaming
(integrating) SP2 into Windows XP a breeze:
