no group policy in Home. That's what separates Home from Pro. There are a lot of missing MMC snap-ins. Sorry dewd. Most Home users wouldn't know what to do with those options.

To enable this in XP Home you have to make the change directly in the registry. Navigate to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ SOFTWARE\ Microsoft\ Windows NT\ CurrentVersion\ Setup\ RecoveryConsole

and change the value for "SetCommand" from 0 to 1.


edit: Thought I'd repeat it here. Didn't see your answers, NetRyder :rolleyes:
