    Windows 10

    Why are all the restore options missing?


    I'm testing restoring Windows 10 from a Windows image on a virtual machine. I created a Windows image on a second drive, but when I reboot into the screen where I should be able to select Refresh your PC, Reset your PC, Advanced options, I get just Startup Settings.

    Welcome to TenForums, mauricev.

    To better help you, can you please do the following?

    From an elevated (admin) command prompt, type and hit enter: reagentc /info

    Then either post a screenshot or copy and paste the text output that results from this command.

    The command revealed that the WindowsRE was disabled. I enabled it and it enabled and the path got set and it's working. Thank you.
