    Help on boot


    Well, i wanted to try if the System Recovery of Windows 8 works,
    So i inserted the CD, restarted, clicked "Esc" key on start, selected An option to insert CD/USB Drive (something like that) i choosed the CD Option, but it doesnt redirects to system recovery, and start windows normally.
