system restore

this article says that you need to boot into safe mode with command prompt.
I am unable to do that. However, I do have Microsoft Windows Recovery
Console that lets me get to C:/windows .... Will I be able to do CD.. to
get to the C: prompt from there, or is that the only directory that it will
let me get into, or can I run the %systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe
command from C:/windows ?

Thank you for any help.

You won't be able to run System Restore from the Recovery Console. Take a look
at the first sentence in the Introduction section of this article.

I'm guessing you've already tried selecting Last Known Good Configuration from
the Windows Advanced Options menu. If that didn't work and you can't start your
computer in Safe mode, your only recourse may be to run a repair installation.

If you haven't backed up all your important files you might want to take steps
to recover them before running using this procedure.

Good luck
