✔ Best Answer
What are you doing at the Advance Options menu? That's your opportunity to fix the problem. Either go into Safe Mode or try Last Known Good Configuration. As for the recovery disks, you should have made them 7 yrs ago when the system was new. The manufacturers don't supply the disks anymore & haven't for a LONG time, but they do put the files on the hard drive & include a utility to create your own disk(s). Unfortuantely, most people don't bother to read the documentation that comes with their new system. See the following:
