Default Access is Denied in Recovery Console

My dad's computer has the standard "..CONFIG FILE IS CORRUPT OR MISSING." and I know the fix for it, but for some reason everytime I enter a command in to the Recovery Console, I get the message "Access is Denied." It never asked me to log on as an administrator, and I think this has something to do with it. Any advice would be greatful, thanks.

What do you mean? When I boot from a CD I have the install, repair, or exit function. Do you mean repair it by doing the install function?

I get this step between two he mentions about the partition. I'm afraid if I select one it will install without asking me about repairing. is this plausible?
