Need to get rid of performing system restore from boot problemsAugust 24, 2020 by Christian Longman
Following are a few simple methods that you can use to fix your system boot recovery problem.
- Restart your computer.
- Press and hold F8 to enter the advanced boot options menu.
- Select Repair your computer.
- Press the enter key.
- Select your keyboard language.
- Click on Continue.
- Log in as an administrator.
- On the System Recovery Options screen, click System Restore.
In short, System Restore allows you to restore your Windows installation to the state it was in when the adverse changes were made.For example, suppose that critical Windows settings are changed in some way, and your system is doing some weird and unexpected things.
Typically, this type of problem can be resolved by using Windows System Restore to restore a restore point that was created a few days earlier.
System Restore usually starts on Windows. However, what if the problem is so severe that your computer won't start from Windows at all?Fortunately, there is a way to run System Restore even if your computer won't boot into Windows as usual. You can simply follow the steps below to start your computer from Command Prompt in Safe Mode and run System Restore from there.
2 - Immediately after pressing the power button, press F8 repeatedly until a menu appears on the screen.
3 - From the menu, select Safe Mode with Command Prompt. Now your computerter should boot into safe mode and display a DOS-style prompt.
4 - When you get to the command line, type rstrui.exe and press Enter. This should launch the system restore utility.
If your computer is running Windows 8.1 or Windows 10, the F8 key to boot into Safe Mode is disabled by default.
However, if the system does not boot into Windows, the Windows RE screen should appear (RE stands for recovery).
When you see the Windows RE screen, you can follow some instructions to start the system in Windows Safe Mode. Here's how:5 - Select one of the options to enable Safe Mode. Note: The option you choose depends on what you want to do when your computer is in Safe Mode. If you want to start System Restore, you need to select the Enable Safe Mode with Command Prompt option.
The computer should now start in Windows Safe Mode selected from the menu. You can now follow the steps at the beginning of this article to start System Restore.
6 - When the computer bootsOnce in Safe Mode and you're at the Command Prompt, type rstrui.exe and press Enter to launch the System Restore utility.
Now for a final note: just because Microsoft decided to disable the F8 key to boot Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 in Safe Mode, don't get hung up on this solution. You can easily activate the F8 key with a simple setup.
If you prefer to use the F8 key instead of navigating the recovery menu to start up in Safe Mode, follow the instructions in the following article that correspond to your version of Windows:
After activating the F8 key, the boot procedure in Safe Mode in Windows 8.1 or 10 is basically the same as in Windows 7.
