    windows cannot repair through the repair feature because it says it cannot recognize the partition.....I have two partitions.....I also have a c drive and a d drive and windows is on my c drive.....

    I need to repair through the repair console....but I don't know how to do that.

    Take a look at this thread HERE, it may help.

    Also, HERE`s a link to the Microsoft article on how to use the recovery console.
