    Thanks! Yeah... But it's nice to know if we have a Recover there

    Shutdown /r /o /t 00

    at the command prompt or in a shortcut will force a restart to the advanced boot options menu. It is best to always run this as administrator if needed.

    Hello wuming, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Which option did you use to boot to the Startup Options Menu?

    If you can start Windows 8, then using OPTION TWO in link above is a good choice.

    Hi, both options still did not show Image Recovery option.
    Does installing in UEFI mode or Legacy mode makes a difference?

    Wuming,

    Not sure why you do not have these options. I suppose that it may be related to UEFI or Legacy mode, but I have no way of testing to see.

    Have you already tried restoring the image (system backup) through "Windows 7 Recovery" in the Control Panel in Windows 8 to hopefully be able to select a "System Backup" like below?

    Hi, somehow it has something to do with installing in UEFI or Legacy mode. Now the option is appearing after I switch to install from Legacy mode which the system came in default.

    Unfortunately, this method fails. In the Advanced Options window, there is no 'Windows Startup Settings' icon in either of my Windows 8 installation discs. Both discs are retail versions.
