    Hi,
    Somehow after an error, my Windows 10 computer keeps booting to CyberLink PowerRecover, which provides me the option to restore to HDD with no backup of user data. This is not what I prefer, since all my user data will be erased. I prefer to restore my computer to an earlier restore point via the Advanced Startup Options. I tried to boot to Advanced Startup Options from a Hard Reboot, however it didn't work.

    What other options do I have? Maybe try to restore Windows 10 from a bootable usb?

    Hello bar, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    Using OPTION FIVE from a USB should allow you to.

    Does this work from the "shutdown or sign out" menu? As in, if your start menu doesn't work, but you can still restart the computer anyway?

    Hello Honeycomb, :)

    Yep, you can do this from any Power menu that includes restart.

    From command-Line


    Dear Brink,

    Also, there is "Option Seven".

    Command-line:
    Code:
    shutdown.exe /r /o /f /t 00

    I saw this in the here when I try to find that can be open directly Advcanced Options screen part from command-line.

    Actually, the first was announced in Building Windows 8:

    Thanks and actual purpose


    I just saw that you're added this method as option Seven. Thanks. I hope, it is useful for everyone.


    I wish that can be open directly Advcanced Options screen part from command-line which that's obviously not possible. Perhaps there is a possible which running related the function from Blue Boot commands of Windows API with rundll32. Mark Russinovich knows if any man does (of course expect Windows kernel/boot team). :)

    Option Six


    Thanks for the instructions. The problem I had was after I installed the Anniversary Update in Windows 10 a message box appeared stating that the app Daemon Tools Lite can't run on this PC. Since the version I had was no longer compatible with the new Windows update I tried to uninstall it. But the message would appear again when I tried to uninstall and the program wouldn't uninstall. I thought that something was interfering with the uninstall so I decided to run MsConfig and restart the computer in Diagnostic Mode.
    After the computer restarted I clicked on the Welcome Screen to get to the Log In Screen but my username and the box to enter my password didn't appear. I couldn't log in. I tried so many things but nothing worked. Until I found this page. I would just like to add a step to Option Six. You should hold down the power button when the blue/cyan Windows logo appears on the screen to force the reboot. This will cause the boot into Advanced Startup Options. I think adding this line just makes it clearer for novice users. User Neonblue also mentioned this in their post.
    In conclusion, after I got the computer to boot into Safe Mode I opened up File Explorer and navigated to C:\Windows\System32 and ran MsConfig.exe as a Administrator. I selected Normal Startup and restarted the computer. The computer started fine and I was able to log in. Thanks, again. However, I still haven't been able to uninstall Daemon Tools Lite. I'll leave for another day.

    Hey all,

    Finally I found another person with this issue! I have tried so many things to get my PC to login again but nothings worked so far. I tried this option, force rebooting the computer, and it does come up with the automatic repair message but instead of going to the Advanced Startup Options page it comes up with Windows Defender Offline. It does a virus scan and then proceeds to boot the computer.

    Is this an issue with my recovery partition or something? I've also tried holding Shift when clicking restart from the login screen with no luck. Is there any other way to get to safe mode? Maybe using command prompt or something?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated,

    Thanks!

    @Shawn, you may want to revisit Option 1. In the newer IP builds the Advanced startup option is missing in Hyper-v of 15063.
