Can I start system restore without starting up windows?

Asked Mar 04, 2010
Yes. People will probably disregard this answer and just post calling you a moron and saying no, but they're probably assuming you're asking if you can restore your system without turning on your computer.

Anyways, if you insert your Windows installation disc, during the loading process you can run system restore in the preboot environment.

Don't expect results though. I've never had system restore work successfully for me, I just don't trust or rely on it. I just back up my data regularly and wipe my system when I have a bad crash and start fresh.
