    Recovery options question


    When I go into recovery options, I don't have the option startup settings under advanced options. Why is mine missing? I just had to format and reinstall 10 cause I couldn't get into safe mode to see if I can fix my problem. I have a hard time getting into safe mode, I h ave a asus motherboard and I try what they suggest but still doesn't work. In the manual it says press f8 after POST. What is considered after POST? Is that after the asus logo where it has the del option to get into the bios.

    Open Admin Command and type: reagentc /info
    If the Recovery Environment is Disabled then you won't see the Advanced option.
    To Enable: reagentc /enable

    It says it's enabled. It did show up one time but after that I couldn't get it to show up.

    By any chance, did you mess around with bcdedit command or use any software to modify the BCD ?

    Some of the entries in the BCD show as unknown and if you delete any of them then it would cause some options missing also. In your case: Startup Settings.

    Did you upgrade your ASUS from Win 8 ?

    I had windows 7 and did a clean install of windows 10, formatted drive and started from scratch. Like I said when I had to redo windows last week that option showed up, when I went back in after several attempts to boot up with no success I remembered that option, but when I went in to select it, it wasn't there.

    Please post a screen shot of Disk Management. I'd like to see what the partition scheme looks like.

    From disk 1, Your Windows 10 OS. From what I saw, this is not a clean fresh install and I don't know how you did it.
    A fresh Windows 10 installation should have: 500MB System Reserved Partition and C drive. Normally, when you perform fresh install, you should not format the drive, just leave it unallocated and let Windows creates all needed partitions. In addition, you had 2 additional Recovery Partitions of 450 MB each, this indicated that you somehow did an upgrade.

    BTW, why did you configure your E: and D: drives as logical ? Normally, they should be congifured as Primary, not logical.
