Regardless of which path you use, system restore will revert the system to the state it was in when the restore point you chose was created. Advanced Options Menu 2:01-2:34 Notice that there are other very useful recovery options available in the advanced options menu. System image recovery can be used to restore a system image that you created previously. This is useful in situations where the hard disk has failed, causing a loss of all data on the drive. Startup repair is a very useful option that will inspect the current Windows installation on the hard disk and replace any missing or corrupt system files that may be preventing Windows from booting. Command prompt can be used to open a command window where you can manually implement fixes to operating system problems. Startup Settings 2:35-4:26 There's another selection in the advanced options menu that you should be familiar with. Startup settings. In earlier versions of Windows, you could press the F8 key as post finished, but before Windows loads to access the advanced boot options menu. This no longer works in Windows 8 and Windows 10. However, the options that were previously available on the advanced boot options menu are still accessible on newer versions of Windows using the startup settings option in the Windows recovery environment. After rebooting, the startup settings menu is displayed, where you can select the following recovery options. Enable boot logging. This is a very useful feature. This will boot Windows normally and log every event that occurs during the boot process in a text file named C:/ntbtlog.txt. You can open this file to review all the various events that occurred during the boot process. Enable safe mode. Safe mode works in the same way it did on earlier versions of Windows. It boots Windows using a minimal set of drivers, just enough to get the system up and running. Usually this will get the system to a point where you can start troubleshooting what's causing the problem. Disable driver signature enforcement. By default, Windows verifies that all device drivers have a valid digital signature. If a driver doesn't have a digital signature, Windows will not allow it to be loaded. If, for some reason, you need to turn this functionality off, you do it here. Disable automatic restart after failure. By default, when Windows encounters an issue and generates a blue screen of death, it immediately reboots the system. As a result, the blue screen does not display long enough to read the error code. This can result in a situation where the system gets stuckin an endless reboot loop. By disabling this feature in this screen, the system will leave the blue screen displayed and not reboot, providing you an opportunity to record the error message.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
