As instructed to do by many forums I press F8 to bring up the advanced boot options as my computer starts. From there I am told to select "repair my computer" the problem is this option isn't available and I'm having trouble finding other optionsseeing as all my software was pre installed and i have no disks, for clarity when i open the advanced boot options page this is what I see
Safe ModeSafe Mode with NetworkingSafe Mode with Command PromptEnable Boot LoggingEnable low-resolution video (640x480)Last Known Good Configuaration (advanced)Directory Services Restore ModeDebugging ModeDisable automatic restart on system failureDisable Driver Signature EnforcementStart Windows Normally
I don't know if this is relevant but I recently upgraded from vista service pack one to SP2
Since the quick restore isn't in the boot list, you will either need to do a manual install or invoke the restore from a Windows DVD.
For the latter option, see
