SUMMARY

When you use the cd or chdir (change directory) command in Recovery Console, you may receive the following error message:
The command is not recognized, Type HELP for a list of supported commands.

MORE INFORMATION

This message occurs if you type the cd or chdir command in one of the following ways:
cd[/d] [drive:][path]
cd[..]
cd[\]
chdir[/d] [drive:][path]
chdir[..]
chdir[\]
Although these commands work in MS-DOS or at a Microsoft Windows NT command prompt, Recovery Console requires that you insert a space between the command and the switch. Type the command in one of the following ways:
cd [/d] [drive:][path]
cd [..]
cd [\]
chdir [/d] [drive:][path]
chdir [..]
chdir [/]
