What kind of configurations can you do inside Windows recovery?
Windows Recovery offers you a couple of options to repair the operating system when it fails to start. There are a total of 3 options, which help you to repair the system. There is the ‘Diagnosis for system problems’, also the ‘System Restore’ and finally ‘System Repair’.
These 3 options are the ones that help you solve each of the problems that your computer presents with respect to the system. However, let’s talk a little more about each of those options that Windows Recovery gives you.
Startup Repair is the first option you’ll find in the ‘Windows Recovery’ window on your computer. What ‘Startup Repair’ does is look for the reason why the computer cannot start up successfully as it is supposed to.
Once ‘Startup Repair’ performs the analysis of why Windows won’t start and finds the specific reason, what will happen is that it will proceed to repair the problem. This Windows feature will try to repair the startup and when successful it will tell you so.
In case you did not know, Microsoft always recommends its users to put a password on their account and if they already have a password, it recommends that they change it from time to time .
The second option is ‘System Restore’. What this function does is take the operating system to a previous edition. That is, to a previous version of the same system that does not have certain files or that does not have certain programs installed. The vast majority of the time, System Restore is more effective at fixing startup problems that Windows is having.
It should be noted that when you need to install an operating system on Windows , you must use certain programs to partition the hard drive . In the event that you cannot repair the startup of your computer, you would have to make the system from scratch.
Diagnosis of memory problems
The last option you will find in Windows Recovery will be the ‘Diagnostic for memory failures’. Such a function examines more internal memory of the computer to find errors and solve the problems of freezing on the computer or the problems of restarting only.
