The initial restore menu through boot up is inaccessible - the pf function doesn't access the menu for restore options.
I now cannot access either computer management or control panel both gone.
Everything is already backed up - I just need to find a way to format HDD
I live in Bermuda so there is no support for my pc here.
I built my last two pcs but the store price for this one was too good too pass up!!
Thanks again for the response.
