    How to Boot to Advanced Startup Options in Windows 10

    information   Information
    Advanced startup enables you to perform these actions:

    This tutorial will show you how to boot to the advanced startup options in Windows 10.

    Note   Note
    When you boot to advanced startup, all user sessions are signed off. If you select a Windows RE feature from this menu, the PC restarts into Windows RE and the selected feature is launched.

    In some situations, Windows RE automatically tries to repair the system. Also, these situations automatically cause a failover to Windows RE:
    • Two consecutive failed attempts to start Windows.
    • Two consecutive unexpected shutdowns that occur within two minutes of boot completion.
    • A Secure Boot error (except for issues related to Bootmgr.efi).
    • A BitLocker error on touch-only devices.


    If users boot to advanced startup from within Windows and select a Windows RE tool, they must provide the user name and password of an administrator account on the local PC. This doesn't apply to the Reset your PC feature.

    The "Two consecutive failed attempts" seems fine until you consider a type of boot that actually gets pretty far along--until something happens--like the machine unexpectedly shutting itself down. That may not be considered a "failed" boot attempt by Windows (if Win8 is any indicator), and so if you don't have your recovery or install media, you're dead.

    No Safe Mode for you.

    I wish F8 was still around. The reason I've heard for its elimination is that systems are too fast now, but no matter the speed, I'm quite confident that I could get at least one press of it recognized (and I do have a fast, SSD-based system). At least the CHANCE that you could is better than having no chance.

    Hello rseiler,

    If you like, you could use the option in the tutorial below to add Safe Mode to your boot menu to have available if needed when you don't have any boot media to use instead. This is the same in Windows 10 as Windows 8.

    I completely forgot about that. Great idea, I think, for at least the duration of the beta, especially considering how frequently the builds might be updated. It's a pain to continually be making recovery USBs.

    Thanks Brink.
    I was wondering where Boot Options was located.

    Maybe I missed that somewhere in the text - in my Asus laptop I have an additional option. I can get into the Advanced Startup Options by tapping F9 after power-on.

    That would be nice if manufacturers would have an "Advanced Startup" option next to the other "Boot Menu" and "Startup (UEFI)" key options.

    Yeah, would be nice if all of the manufacturers could agree on some common BIOS standards. But this F9 facility is on both of my Asus devices, The T100 and the X205.
