Windows 7: Removing "Repair this computer" option in Windows 7

Removing "Repair this computer" option in Windows 7

To begin with the proverbial... I didn't know exactly where to post this but...

Is there a way to edit, change or alter the advanced start up screen in Windows 7 to remove the "Repair this computer" option? We are having a huge issue with users improperly selecting this option and trying to fix the computer themselves.. In a enterprise environment this is a HORRIBLE option and we have to hide it or delete it.

Thanks in advance!

Well i am not sure the appropriate, Microsoft approved way to do this.. But i made a batch file with this command...

bcdedit /set {default} bootstatuspolicy ignoreallfailures

And it gave me the end result i was looking for.. No more "Repair this computer" on a windows error recovery reboot. Hopefully this will resolve the flood of support tickets this stupid option has created.

Looks like it will remove Startup Repair's ability to autostart if Windows 7 fails to start?

I couldn't think of a way to remove WinRE from Advanced Boot Options without chancing this.

Our BCD expert here SIW2 would likely know how to remove the hotlink only.
