As mentioned in the first post on Windows RE, the recovery console has been deprecated in Windows Vista. So you ask what happened to all those wonderful commands that were available in recovery console. Well, we were kind of hoping that you wouldn't need them anymore. But if you do, you'll be glad to know that most of them are available via the command line in Windows RE. Here's a list of recovery console commands that are different or unavailable in Windows RE:

Recovery console command

Windows RE equivalent

BootCfg

BootRec /ScanOS

BootRec /RebuildBcd

bcdedit

FixBoot

BootRec /FixBoot

FixMBR

BootRec /FixMbr

Map

DiskPart

Logon

LISTSVC

ENABLE

DISABLE

SYSTEMROOT

All the remaining commands have the same name in Windows RE. The services related commands (listsvc, enable and disable) that are not available, can be worked around by manually loading the registry hive using regedit.
