    Advanced Startup has no recovery options


    I am wanting to restore my Windows 8.1 laptop from a System Image stored on an external hard drive.
    I opened the ‘Charms bar’ and clicked on ‘Settings’ then ‘Change PC settings’ then clicked on ‘Update and Recovery’ then ‘Recovery’ and selected ‘Restart Now’ under ‘Advanced Startup’ I then selected ‘Troubleshoot’ to get to ‘Advanced Options’ where there should have been options such as ‘System Restore’, ‘System Image Recovery’, ‘Startup Repair’ and ‘Command Prompt’ but all there is is ‘Startup Settings’.

    Can someone please help me to restore these missing options.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    I think your computer might have its recovery environment either corrupted or missing. You may want to attempt to rebuild it and see if that helps, Here's how: https://www.winhelp.us/restore-windows-re.html
