Windows 8.1 Always Boots in Advanced Startup Menu

Q: Windows 8.1 Always Boots in Advanced Startup Menu

Per this article below, I used the advanced startup menu in Win 8.1 to disable signed driver checking.Windows 8 and Intel USB 3.0 Host Controllers | Plugable

After I installed some unsigned Intel Usb 3.0 drivers, every time I shutdown and restart the machine from the old (Win 7) desktop, or the Metro UI, the machine now ALWAYS reboots/restarts with the Advanced startup menu.

I can't find any way to cancel this from happening. It is driving me nuts.

Please help!

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hi,

My computer uses AC'97 to deliver audio but unfortunately there is no official driver for it in windows 8.1 (I have tried using Windows 7 drivers).

So, what I have to do is download a unofficial one and install it but in order to do that I have to remove Driver Signature Verfication which can only be done in advance startup menu.

The keyboard used to work fine in windows 8 but somehow in 8.1 it doesn't. Now I'm sitting in front of my desktop without audio.

I checked the BIOS, but found nothing related to the Adv Startup Menu.

The only way to access the Adv Startup Menu is to experience a freeze; hard shut down. Upon re-start the Windows Adv Startup menu appears.

If this fails then you may need to run Dell Windows 7 PC Restore from it's partition, or get a superior Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 following the steps and methods and using only the tools to maintain a perfect reinstall.

Hello, my notebook gets stuck in a boot loop I can only break by entering the Startup Menu pressing the ESC key. The boot loop constists in: the notebook starts (the power button goes ON and the Caps Lock led goes ON and then OFF), the screen goes white and then restarts. If I do nothing this procedure repeats infinitely. I can break this loop by hiting the ESC key while booting. Then the laptop screen starts making something strange (from black to some dashed white lines and back to black). If I connect an external monitor no signal goes there. If I disconnect the laptop screen and keep only the external monitor connected, the boot loop still extists, but when I hit the ESC key it enters the Startup Menu. I can see it on the external monitor, once there I can start Windows normally by pressing ENTER key. I tried everything I found: to perform a Hard Reset, to falsh the BIOS, to change the BIOS battery, to reinstall the RAM modules and the HDD, to change the screen wire, but the problem persists.

Welcome to TSG---

Try choosing Disable Automatic Restart from that Windows Options menu. That flash of blue should then become a blue screen stop error which hopefully gives more information about the specific error.

Post the blue screen error---word for word please.

Also---any new hardware or software installed recently? Unplug any external devices and try the boot again.

I was surfing the web when a blue screen of death flashed up and my Dell Inspiron E1505 restarted, taking me to the usual Windows Advanced Options Menu -- except now I can't leave. If I don't touch anything, it hovers over 'boot normally' for 30 seconds before freezing. If I go up and hit enter on 'safe mode' it also just freezes and absolutely nothing happens. You see all the options still, but now you can't move up/down w/ the keyboard to re-select. I've tried the different variants: 'safe mode with networking,' 'boot from last good config' etc. Nothing works. I've run the "PSA+ Pre-boot System Assessment" two times (including the extended memory test) and it passes everything / no problems. Then it asks to re-boot, and again it hangs in the same menu without getting anywhere. I can't do a repair/recovery because this is a hand-me-down laptop from my brother, so I don't have any CDs.

A friend of mine is dual booting Windows ME and Windows 2000 Adv. Server. The system has previously had windows XP Home installed on it and the Win 2000 Adv. Serv. has also been previously installed on the system, but then was removed. Because of this the OS boot menu shows Windows ME, Windows XP, and two Win 2000 Adv. Serv. entries...

What we want to know is how to delete the old entries, and for all of you Windows XP users out there, in the "Startup and recovery" section, there is no "manual edit" button like XP has, so therefore we are stuck... We have searched for files with the name of "boot" and also files that may contain "/fastdetect" like the startup and recovery drop-down menu shows.

Hello,

I have a computer that is stuck in a loop and won't boot into normal or safe mode. There is a blue screen flashing up, but way too quick for me to be able to see the STOP code.

The problem I have is that the American Megatrends BIOS 2.51, has an option on the boot screen "Press F8 for BBS Popup". Therefore I can't use the F8 key to get into the Windows XP Advanced Options menu. Why the hell has a BIOS manufacturer hijacked an important Windows key?????

I have also tried pressing the F8 key AFTER the BIOS screen, but even by doing that you still get a boot order list by pressing F8, and not the Advanced Options menu.

Does anyone know how to either:
1. Disable the Press F8 for BBS Popup in the BIOS? (I've looked, so has a workmate, but we can't see it)

or

2. Is there an alternative to using the F8 key to access the Advanced Options menu?

Hope someone can help.

Hello,

A few days ago I reinstalled Windows due to some problems, all resolved now. However, a new problem has occurred. When I go to Advanced Startup and click "Restart Now" to go into the advanced startup mode, it doesn't work. The computer restarts and simply goes back to the log in screen. I need to boot from a USB drive to test some things, and I cannot do it. I also tried changing the boot order, so my Flash Drive boots first, but it simply skips it and goes straight into Windows.

The Advanced Startup worked just fine before the reinstall and I need help to get this working again. I looked online and found a possible solution by disabling "Secure Boot" in BIOS. I did it with no avail.

I have a Microsoft Sidewinder X4 USB keyboard. When I restart Windows 8 using Advanced Startup Mode I get the familiar menu where you have to enter F1-F9 to select an option (or F10 for more options). My keyboard doesn't work, however. I tried pressing all of the F-keys but none of them are recognized.

I am pretty sure it's not a BIOS issue because whenever I do a cold boot I can get into the BIOS by pressing the DEL key so I know the keyboard is recognized by my system.

Any ideas as to why I can't use my keyboard in Windows 8 Advanced Startup?

Thank you.

A:Windows 8 Advanced Startup - Not Recognizing Keyboard

Try pressing regular numbers instead of F-key numbers.

Instead of F-4 just press the number 4.

That won't work with F-10 since there is no 10 on the keyboard.

In BIOS have you enabled Boot Menu & pressed F-12 at startup ?

Post back with results.

EDIT---

If you get F-12 at restart to work & get this:

Choose UEFI & proceed.

Shut down normally about three days ago, today went to start it up and it went immediately to Startup Repair which was unsuccessful.
I cannot boot into safe mode (no restore points found- I know they are there because I check them regularly)
I cannot boot from the OEM disc
Debugging mode does not work
Last known configuration does not work
I did boot into the diagnostics screen (F2 or F12, I can't remember) and it did a diagnostic on the hardware so I think my hard drives and memory are ok.
I tried startup repair again and it just now gives up after about 20 seconds and says it can't repair my computer.
When I try to 'start windows normally', it starts, the Dell logo comes up, the white bar loads, then the Intel Array info comes up, then the screen with the little green thingie runs back and forth then it goes to a really quick blue screen that says my computer is being shut down to protect it.

The user lock screen is the one that displays when a user locks the PC while still signed in to Windows. Each user is able to change their lock screen background image to an image of their choice.The default Lock screen image is the one that displays when there are no users currently signed in to Windows.

The nonstarter is "NIS Time (32bit).exe", which sets my computer clock according to the government Internet time signal.

There must be something in Windows 7 preventing it from starting. It started fine when I was using Windows XP, and I've configured it the same way.

What's weird is that the shortcut in the Startup folder works fine if I doubleclick it. But it won't start on its own when Windows 7 boots.

"NIS Time" has a delay argument, which I've tried both ways: no delay and a one-minute delay. Neither booted at startup.

I tried using Task Scheduler instead of the Startup folder, but that didn't work either.

A:One shortcut in Startup won't start when Windows 7 boots.

Hello Zarfs,

This is due to Windows 7 will not run an elevated (run as administrator) program at startup.

Hello,

My Windows 7 now refuses to boot properly and now only boots into startup repair. This started happening after I shrunk and moved the /dev/sda2 partition (on my computer, the C:\ drive), so I could install Ubuntu. I did notice that Windows failed to boot but I was stupid and didn't fix as soon as I realized. I installed Ubuntu (and with it, Grub) and now Windows just boots into Startup Repair which just says it can't do anything and then displays some HP software that gives me a few options (none of which has helped). It may be important to note that I have the option to go to the command prompt.

I have tried all the fixes I have found on the internet (such as the various bootrec.exe commands) to no avail and am becoming desperate! Please help!

Silly question, but did you have the Windows OS Install Disc in the CD/DVD drive, when you were attempting to run the Startup Repair?

If not, please do that, ensure that your Boot Order is set to read discs (look in the BIOS) and try booting from the Windows disc again.

I have recently noticed that Windows 7 will freeze during startup, specifically while the Windows Logo is midway from forming. After this occurs, I will usually just have to turn my computer off and then on again. When I do this, Windows will boot up normally with no errors. If I wait, the computer will automatically continue booting up after roughly 20 seconds have passed.

Originally, I suspected this may have been a driver issue with Wacom as I received an error from one of the drivers however after removing them completely the problem persisted. I also attempted to restore Windows to a time when it was function properly using Restore Points with no effect.

I have recently flashed (updated) my BIOS and installed a 2nd Nvidia GTX 680 in SLI mode. I have also recently updated my Nvidia Drivers.

What could be causing this problem?

I am trying to fix a friends pc. he has installed Win XP Pro and each time he turns machine on he gets the Advanced Boot Menu. He always chooses Normal start up and then Windows loads ok.

How can he get rid of this Option Screen and get Windows to load straight away.

Hi zarah,

Try this:
Start->Run->msconfig->ok
Click the Boot.ini tab and uncheck /Safeboot if it is checked
Click Ok

Then on next reboot, if /Safeboot was checked and is now unchecked, the system should just boot up in Normal mode.

This will likely not be answered as it pertains to menus that were intentionally locked by the manufacturer.

Hello, I have a remote user who has a Lenovo desktop with Windows 10. She is unsure which model it is. Windows fails to load (when windows loads the cursor just spins for hours and never loads). I want her to open the Advanced Boot Menu and run a "repair your computer" before windows start loading and I tell her to hit the f8 key repeatedly. This is not working. What is the key combination for Lenovo computers to get to the Advanced Boot Menu (Safe mode/repair) or is it F8 and just a Windows 10 issue with it booting too fast?

No, that is NOT the fastest computer to game on.  Here is a little primer ... E series devices are 'Entry level' products, designed for the casual user who wants to do the basics at a reasonable price.  These models are not targeted at heavy users like gamers, photo editors, video makers, etc.  For big time gaming power, take a look at the Predator line.  Now THAT is a gaming platform!

Does anyone know how to edit the advanced boot menu? When I hit the F10 key I would like to add my own entry there. Any guides/ideas? I have started to do research on BCD.

I have a computer that keeps going back to the advanced options menu. So it won't boot to the desktop. Each time I select safe mode, command prompt, last known good config, safe mode with networking or whatever the choice may be it keeps coming back to the advanced options menu.

My strategy is to clean the drive for viruses then see what happens. Then I'll try connecting a known working hard drive to the computer to test whether a hardware malfunction is causing the problem. Then if those steps fail look to reinstall Windows if the hard drive is healthy.

Any advise?

Yep, your right - AV the drive - pop a new one in and stick an OS on there and then slave the 'old' drive to recover your data - Thats the best thing you can do. Well advised Jones!

I'm having issues with my graphics card and I need to switch my Intel off and Nvidia on. I saw on the internet that you need to enter the Advanced BIOS to do that. But for some reason, I can't see it in the BIOS. I am using an HP 15 Notebook PC.

I am trying to remove a program from my startup menu. I have windows xp home editions. I have reviewed several websites and all are the same. After performing the task as directed in msconfig and I reboot and the following message appears.
You have used the System Configuration Utility to make changes to the way Windows starts.

The system Configuration Utility is currently in Diagnostic or Selective Startup mode, causing this message to be displayed and the utility to run every time Windows starts.

Choose the Normal Startup mode on the General tab to start Windows normally and undo the changes you made using the System Configuration Utility.

Don?t show this message or launch the system Configuration Utility when Windows start:

OK
After I select ok the program I unchecked is automatically recheck and back in the startup menu. How do I remove a program from the startup menu permanently.

Try with HijackThis...

Do a system scan and remove program from the startup...
But be careful and do not remove some important file...
Best way would be to remove only program that you do not want to have anymore in startup...

When I was on vacation, I accidently left my XP CD in the reader, and someone accidently started to install XP. (it did not complete)
I now have 2 "Windows XP Professional" listings on the black screen at startup.

How do I remove one of these?

Thanks,

Hi all, here's one for you: my in-laws' relatively new PC has decided to throw up an interesting fault where it comes up with the 'no boot device found' message when you try to turn it on.
However, if you catch it before it attempts to boot, enter the boot menu and then exit it without making any changes then it boots just fine.
They're running Windows 10 (recently upgraded from Windows 8) and I think it was happening before the upgrade but I can't be 100% sure.
Any initial ideas on what could be going on?
Many thanks.
Mike.

Win 8.1.... For me there is no 'Advanced Options' tab inside the Troubleshoot menu... so I can't alter UEFI secure boot function status in order to set up dual boot to linux.... the Troubleshoot only takes me to 'advanced startup options' menu... nothing else... No 'Refresh' or 'Reset' tabs short of reinstalling the whole system...?

Any idea how to restore the missing Advanced options...?
