Solved F8 Advanced Boot Options won't work

Hi guys, just wondered if anyone with good knowledge of BCD entries could take a look at this and help me to fix the F8 boot options (System Recovery) Options not working.

Everything was working okay, until I installed the Macrium Reflect Boot menu. Now whenever I press F8 to get into Advanced Boot Options/Recovery options it just boots me directly into Windows. Tried uninstalling Macrium and deleting any Macrium entries in BCD, but no difference. Hopefully somebody can take a look, so I can get the F8 menu to show up again. Many thanks.

Here are the BCD entries:

Managed to fix it by just reinstalling the Macrium Boot Menu and keeping it set to 3 seconds so it forces the boot menu to briefly appear on each boot, giving me time to enter the recovery options if needed.
