RECOMMENDED: Click here to fix Windows errors and optimize system performance
so you can access your files. If you use System Restore or if you want to run your antivirus to remove malware, which is often the case with most home users, this is the best boot mode. In addition to this feature, you also have access to other integrated Windows tools such as Command Prompt, PowerShell, Computer Manager, Device Manager, Device Manager, Event Log Viewer, etc.
If you did not activate the F8 key, you can only start Windows 10 in this scenario from the Advanced Start Options menu described above. From this menu, select Troubleshooting > Advanced Options > Start Settings > Restart > Press 4.
By pressing the ‘4’ key, your PC restarts in safe mode. To restart in safe mode with Networking, press the’5′ key. To restart in Safe Mode at the command prompt , press the ‘6’ key.
Once in safe mode, you can use one of the built-in system tools to troubleshoot or restore your system to a good working point.
For some strange reason, if you can boot in Safe Mode but cannot access the Advanced Boot Options screen, you can use the Safe Mode command prompt to launch Windows 10 directly to the Advanced Boot Options screen.
If neither helps you, read the following.
Booting with a Windows 10 bootable floppy disk
It is strongly recommended to always have a bootable floppy disk handy. You can create a bootable hard disk with Windows 10 ISO from any PC. Then you need to change the BIOS settings to boot from the bootable USB instead of the PC. Now follow the steps below:
- Connect the USB and the BIOS will choose to boot from the USB hard disk.
- You are prompted to install Windows 10, click the Next button.
- The Repair Computer option appears in the lower left corner of the next screen.
- Press or click R on your keyboard.
- The Advanced Start Options screen appears.
From this screen, you can choose whether you want to restore the previous operating state or start in different Safe Mode modes to solve your problem.
This is the last option, not recommended, but if you have nothing else, try at your own risk. Turn off the PC suddenly when you have turned it on. Do it several times. After 3 times, this may cause Windows to think there is a problem with your PC and it will force the’Automatic Repair’ screen. From there, you have access to the extended boot options .
If nothing works, there may be a problem with your hard drive. You can connect it to another PC and see if you can boot from it or if you can access the files. If you cannot or the other PC does not recognize it, you may want to replace it with a new hard drive. However, you don’t have to worry about your Windows 10 license, especially if you have connected it to a Microsoft account. Windows 10 is automatically activated after installation.
Professional advice: Always create frequent restoration points
That is, here is advice from my personal experience. Continue and enable automatic creation of restore points at startup. A new system restore point can sometimes be of great help! When you have a restore point, not only do you save a lot of time, but you also make sure things get back to normal, and you can start your PC for an important job.
