    I have been trying to uninstall sp2 through the recovery console. But the file that 'ol Microsoft asks me to look for can not be found...cd $ntservicepackuninstall$\spuninst

    Can someone tell me where the file might have gone off to...

    *In case your wondering, I have an error at the boot up process and have determined the only way to recover is going this route.

    Thanks,
    MtgGuru

    Do a search for spuninst

    If it still can not find it it must have gotten deleted or erased by accident.

    Had you set Folder Options to show hidden files & folders when you were looking for the $ntservicepackuninstall$\spuninst ?
