Advanced Windows Startup Settings in Windows 8:

Settings

Description

  

Repair Your Computer

Shows a list of system recovery options that you can use to repair startup problems, run diagnostics, or restore your system. If Repair your computer isn't listed as an option, then your computer doesn't have the 350MB System Reserved partition normall added during the installation of Windows 8.

  

Enable debugging

Starts Windows 8 in an advanced troubleshooting mode intended for IT professionals and system administrators.

  

Enable boot logging

Creates a file named ntbtlog.txt, that lists all the drivers that are installed during startup and that might be useful for advanced troubleshooting.

  

Enable low-resolution video

Starts Windows 8 using your current video driver and using low 640x480 resolution and refresh rate settings. You can use this mode to reset your display settings, or to use a television monitor with your computer if needed.

  

Enable Safe Mode

This starts Windows 8 with a minimal set of drivers and services.

  

Enable Safe Mode with Networking

This starts Windows 8 in safe mode and includes the network drivers and services needed to access the Internet or other computers on your network.

  

Enable Safe Mode with Command Prompt

This starts Windows 8 in safe mode with a command prompt window instead of the usual Windows interface. To exit from here, press Ctrl+Alt+Delete or type Exit and press Enter.

  

Disable driver signature enforcement

Allows drivers containing improper signatures to be temporarily installed.

  

Disable early launch anti-malware driver

Starts Windows 8 with Early Launch Anti-Malware disabled.

  

Disable automatic restart after failure

Prevents Windows 8 from automatically restarting if an error causes Windows 8 to fail. Choose this option only if Windows 8 is stuck in a loop where Windows 8 fails, attempts to restart, and fails again repeatedly.

Another option from a running Windows 8.

1. On the desktop open a command prompt.

2. Type shutdown /r /o /t 00 and hit enter.

3. Windows will start to shutdown and enter the Advanced Boot Menu without restarting.

4. Follow the arrows on the screen below.

Hello Hastyle, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Unfortunately, you must have a keyboard attached to your PC or device to be able to select an option from the "Startup Settings" menu. Your mouse and touch screen won’t work on the "Start Settings" menu at all. :(

I have W8.1 on three computers. On one when in Recovery and having selected Advanced start-up what appears after clicking on Troubleshoot on the "Choose an option" screen is "Advanced options" - but only one shows. This is "Start-up settings".


All the other 4 or 5 options which I see on the other computers do not appear. I have not found any reference to this in a web search.


Does anyone have knowledge about this?

Hello dsim,

The options you have will vary per system a bit depending on if it's an OEM PC or not, and how you booted to Advanced Startup.

How and what did you use to boot to Advanced Startup, and I'll see what I see doing the same?

Thank you for your response, Brink. The problem is on a 64 bit Dell laptop on which I had W7 Pro 64 bit and Vista Business 32 bit. I had upgraded to W8 from Vista, both 32 bit. This was via Microsoft's $45 deal when W8 first came out. Subsequently upgraded from W8 via Store to W8.1 and then have added all other updates including W8.1.1.
My main computer has W8.1 installed - a purchased license key.

As a bit more background and how this arose - I am a tutor at a Seniors computer club, which exists because members have generally come very late to computers, and are now trying to learn, or learn more. Some have W8.1 with the free upgrade and others have computers which as purchased have W8.1. As part of classes exploring W8.1 we looked ay Recovery. When preparing for this I found that my laptop only had one option under Advanced options and I assumed that, as with Refresh no longer being available in the free upgrade version the other options were also removed.

I found when giving the class that those who had the free upgrade version also had all the options. I now suspect there is a problem with the laptop.

The steps of getting to the Advanced options are: Charms bar: Settings: Change PC settings: Update and Recovery: Recovery: Advanced start-up - Restart now: (from Choose an option) Troubleshoot: Advanced options and here there is shown only the Start-up settings.

What is missing is that after Troubleshoot (Refresh or reset your PC or use advanced tools) the next screen is Advanced options, whereas others see a second Troubleshoot screen, with Refresh, Reset and Advanced option boxes. When clicking on that Advanced options the next screen is headed as Advanced options and has 5 other in addition to Start-up settings.

So I wonder if this of a feature of the particular free upgrade on the laptop, and others have different versions or if it is a fault. I have run sfc /scannow but no problem found there.

Do you think that somehow you may be selecting "Advanced Options" by mistake on the "Troubleshoot" screen for a split second, and thus not seeing the "Troubleshoot" screen?

If you have not already, see if it gives you the same if booting from a recovery drive (USB) instead.

On my laptop, when I am in Choose an option there are four boxes:

Continue: Use another operating system: Troubleshoot: Turn off your PC
The second one is for W10 preview on another partition. Class members only had three boxes.

On my laptop, clicking on Troubleshoot leads directly to Advanced options.
On others it goes to another screen showing a second Troubleshoot with three boxes, including Advanced options, which when clicked on gives 6 options - not one.

I do not have a recovery drive. I down loaded the original W8 as an ISO and burnt a DVD of this. It is for W8. So the answer is I have not tried booting from a recovery drive.

In "Choose an option", they wouldn't have the "Use another OS" option unless they were dual booting.

When you get to "Advanced options", does clicking on the back arrow take you back to the usual "Troubleshoot" screen, or does it take you back to "Choose an option"?

If you are booting to advanced startup from within Windows, then as a test, see what you get by booting from your installation DVD or recovery drive instead.

When I click on Troubleshoot in Choose an option it goes to Advanced options with only Start-up settings showing.

The back arrow takes me back to Choose an option.

I do not see a Troubleshoot screen at any time.

I have also tried to see what is in an earlier version, from a backup taken on 28/10/2013. The same things happen there, so it has been present for some time it seems.

My installation DVD is W8, not W8.1. I have used this, selecting Repair. This gives all the screens - that is it now includes the Troubleshoot screen with Refresh, Reset and Advanced options. Selecting this latter gives four options - System Restore; System Image Recovery; Automatic Repair and Command Prompt. Start-up settings is not there.

Does this mean that the system should rebuilt - if so I will leave this for a job over the Xmas shutdown.

As I wrote earlier the system on the other partition is W10 preview, and although I can not see how this could cause an impact, I did wonder. I have found that with it installed the Restart from the shutdown options does not now work - I have to shutdown , after restart is clicked, by the power button and restart from there.
