I need to restore my computer without disc, what should I write in command prompt?


To access the System Restore Gui from command prompt you will need to type in rstrui.exe
OR
%Windir%\System32\rstrui.exe

If you are experiencing Boot issues you will need to install a boot manager. If your system is missing a file or a file is broken, you may need to replace that file with a working version that's compatible with your OS Version.
