    cbleman,

    You could also open command prompt at boot to use the tutorial to enable the F8 option.

    Cycling the power several times to maybe get an advanced boot option? F8.

    Brink, I appreciate your patience. Perhaps I'm missing something. Is there an easy and reliable way to boot to a command prompt, or bring up advanced boot options from a hard reboot every time on any Windows 10 machine?

    Using OPTION ONE below to open a command prompt at boot is the most reliable way.

    Afterwards, you could do the tutorial below to enable F8.

    Hello bencheaadelin, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Did you have any other issues before doing this that could be related?

    For now, see if doing a hard shutdown (press and hold power button until PC powers off) and restart may allow you to boot.

    In that case, see if you may be able to boot from your installation USB to do a system restore using a restore point dated before this happened.
