    Hey guys!

    As the title says I cant access the advanced boot options in Windows 10. After Windows failed booting I tried the option to recover a previous version of Windows. After that failed it has gone into an infinite loop of reboots, trying to recover a previous version.
    The problem is that I cant stop the process by going into the advanced settings. All the tuts Ive found online gives me intructions to get to the menu from the desktop.

    All suggestions are greatly appreciated! <3

    Hi Anders,
    if you have an install disk you could try booting from it and then entering the recovery console.

    If you know a friend running Windows 10 they could create a system recovery disk/usb which again you could boot from and enter the recovery console.

    If you can get to the lock screen hold down the shift key and click restart.
