Okay so I think I got it I can use restore points on system boot but I have a problem and to make a long story short i know that recovery images are stored on a hidden folder called "system volume" but i cant find it so how do i get to it now?

Well I do have the ability to restore on reboot but it says that I have no recovery images on the drive because apparently multipoint is a OS that wipes the system but i guess when I installed multipoint it put all my old files on a folder called "Windows.old" which if my guess is right has my old recovery image on it, and since the recovery image is on windows.old and not on windows my pc thinks I dont have one so all I need to do is transfer my image from windows.old to just windows. Long story short XD

Unfortunately, restore points are not carried over into "Windows.old". However, if you would like to use the previous installation in the Windows.old folder, then you could use the link below from Microsoft to possible be able to go back to the previous installation.

Were you not able to just uninstall Multipoint through Programs & Features to be back to before you installed it?
