Any one aware of how to either repair the pagefile.sys / move pagefile.sys
or create pagefile.sys from the recovery console, or is there any command
line utililtes to do so?

Thanks in advance.

What do you want to do? You can work the pagefile while in normal
Windows session, does the computer not boot?

You can delete the pagefile from the Recovery Console but pagefile.sys
is not accessible from the Windows 2000 Recovery Console. To overcome
the limitation copy another file to pagefile.sys, like so:

Change to the root directory with the cd command:

cd \

then copy boot.ini to the pagefile, like so:

copy c:\boot.ini pagefile.sys

Now you should be able to see and delete the pagefile, to delete do:

del pagefile.sys

Windows will/should create a new pagefile.sys when you reboot.

The pagefile.sys file cannot be created or "adjusted" from Recovery
Console. Only deleted as in John's reply. All other operations
involving the paging file or files is only available from the booted
and running system.

Exception: Some bootable CD's may provide registry editing tools
which might allow you to make alterations (such as size/location)
that would only take effect when the regular Windows system was again
running. Not recommended in any case.
