    W8 Recovery Drive does not show startup settings


    I created a Recovery Drive on my laptop. I booted into the recovery drive, go into advanced options and only see:
    • system restore
    • system image recovery
    • automatic repair
    • command prompt

    but I do not see Windows Startup Settings to enter the safe mode?

    Kindest Regards.
