    when i did 1. 2. 3. steps i checked and problem was SOLVED
    but after 4. 5. 6. 7. steps i checked and no advanced startup options again

    1. Make a complete backup image of your current HD including all partitions to an external HD using macrium reflect . Once done, disconnect all USB devices from the PC. Assuming now you only have one HD connected to the PC which you will be installing Windows.
      IMPORTANT: Also create a Macrium Rescue disk to boot from later on.
    2. Boot up your Windows installation USB/DVD. On the first screen, Hold SHIFT + F10 to open Command Windows then type:
      Diskpart
      select disk 0
      clean
      exit
    3. Click Next, Choose Custom, select the unallocated partition then click Next (Do not format), when asked for Product ID key, click on "Skip this step"/"Do it later". Continue the Installation.
    4. Once done. With the external HD connected, Reboot your PC with the Macrium Rescue disk, select the image that you created in step 1 as the Source.
    5. Select your current HD/SSD as Destination disk
    6. Restore only C: Drive to it. ie. overwrite the new C: Drive with your backup C: Drive.
      NOTE: See screen shot on how to perform this step
    7. Disconnect all the external devices. Reboot. Windows should perform a startup repair.

    till 4. step there was no windows 10 key activeted and problem vas solved
    but after step 7 i checked key and it was not the same which i purchased, why did that change? i activated purchased key again.
    so is the problem to be a windows 10 key on my pc?
    or do some drivers prevent advancedstartup options?

    The information in the "My Computer" will enable all those viewing the thread to find the computer information and provide support.
    1) Please update this section:

    2) Can you tell us what has happened on your computer that you need to use the windows advanced troubleshooting menu?
    Were there recent hardware or software changes?
    Was there malware?

    3) What is the status of the drive?
    Were there any SMART, short, or long generic tests?

    4) What is the history of Windows installations and upgrades?
    Was it a windows 7 to 8.1 to 10 upgrade?
    What is the current operating system version and build?

    In post 12 it is unclear which steps that you are following.
    If you are using another website please post links into the thread so we can follow the steps.

    1) Can you tell us what has happened on your computer that you need to use the windows advanced troubleshooting menu?
    Were there recent hardware or software changes?
    Was there malware?

    2) What is the status of the drive?

    The Advanced Troubleshooting Menu runs from the Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE). The Windows Recovery Environment is normally contained in a 450MB recovery partition. The problem is that there either was not a proper recovery environment present, or that Windows 10 was not linked to it. The link to the WinRE is set with the reagentc command. reagentc /info will tell you the status of WinRE. reagentc /setreimage will create the link to the Recovery Environment, if there is a proper WinRE to link to in the Recovery Partition.

    Doing the clean install on the hard drive should have created the proper Recovery Partition with the proper WinRE contained in it. However, the previous Windows install did not contain a reagentc link to it, so it still would not work after the old Windows was restored over the top of the clean install.

    The next step is to get a screenshot of disk management, and a list of the partitions on the hard drive, either with a program like MiniTool Partition Wizard - or using diskpart commands to determine the actual partition number of the recovery partition so that it can be linked to with the reagentc /setreimage command.

    The command should be:
    reagentc /setreimage /path \\?GLOBALROOT\device\harddisk0\partition#\Recovery\WindowsRE

    But you need to know the real partition # and you can't trust built-in Windows disk management because it will not show the hidden Microsoft Reserved Partition on GPT partitioned drives when booting in UEFI mode.

    Your current Windows 10 installation itself is broken. If it was just not linked to a recovery partition you would see this:

    Code:
    Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.15063]
    (c) 2017 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.
    
    C:\Windows\system32>reagentc /info
    Windows Recovery Environment (Windows RE) and system reset configuration
    Information:
    
        Windows RE status:         Disabled
        Windows RE location:
        Boot Configuration Data (BCD) identifier: 5c538c41-3716-11e7-b334-d8cb8a71f683
        Recovery image location:
        Recovery image index:      0
        Custom image location:
        Custom image index:        0
    
    REAGENTC.EXE: Operation Successful.
    You can try to repair your current Windows installation and see if you can at least get the above result:
    Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade Windows 10 Installation Upgrade Tutorials

    If that doesn't work, then you are just going to have to settle with starting over with a clean install and not copying your broken Windows 10 over it.
