    You should note that on newer computers (such as Toshiba P-50B) with Win 8.1 it is possible to reach the “Choose an Option” screen without a recovery drive. Press and hold the 0 key while starting up. Hold down 0, a menacing looking Red screen with come up telling you that you are in the HD Recovery area – press Yes to continue. THIS DOES NOT wipe out your HD, yes takes you to the “Choose and Option” screen.

      Holding down zero (0) worked for me. Thank you

      Wow, that is news to me, and I work in a PC Shop. Point is, there’s a million different secret manufacturer and software company shortcuts that they do not want anybody to know about, or else who makes the money? Basically, however you found that trick out, is awesome. That may be a strictly Toshiba firmware feature for their newer laptops, or it sounds like Windows 8.1 just had a bunch more of secret shortcuts to give out? Anyway, I thought about putting my two cents out there and say thanks for that awesome tip! Remember, we’re all in this together, even Microsoft. lol

    Sounds great, but what do you do if you don’t know anyone with a Windows 8.1 computer?

    My computer freezes on the ‘Preparing Automatic Repair’ screen. Does anyone know if the recovery drive on a flash drive still work for this issue? And if so, do I insert the flash drive before starting the computer? Thanks.

    What should I do if my computer (with Windows 8), right after it’s powered, goes in a big loading screen saying “Wait”… and stays like that for – right now – 5 fucking hours? The only clue I have is that I might’ve accidentaly shut it down hard, because some asshole put that power button in such place a slight move may power it down…

    I had a question. Something happened, im not sure what, but occasionally my Lenovo windows 8.1 touchscreen desktop would blue-screen and say “Your PC ran into a problem and needs to restart” but it would just sit there. Id turn it off and back on a few times till it says “advanced Options” and id hit “Exit and continue to windows 8.1” where the lock screen would come back and id use the computer like normal. But this time, when the lock screen came back, I couldn’t do anything. My finger wouldn’t work, my keyboard wouldn’t either. I try turning if off and back on, and still nothing. What happened and how do I fix this?

    Thanks for all that precious knowledge that you’ll share with the world….!! but i got a question? I would like to know how do you start a Desktop or loptop, notebook etc when you have a bsod? no display to figure out what is happening with your pc? when you don’t have any extra equipment or parts to swap out to diagnose the equipment you having the issue with? For me I think this is something to think about? like we all say is not rocket science we are dealing here is just basic things that we may face any time during our routine lives you’ll. thanks i hope you”ll have a simple fix for it.
