Can I create a shortcut to reboot into System Recovery Options?

Hey All,

Is there any way I can create a shortcut (or file) to reboot the pc straight into the System Recovery (F8) menu.

I've been able to create one for the Windows 8 PR (in virtualbox) not sure if I can do this in Windows 7 though.

Hi Seavixen,

Thanks for the link but that just takes me to the recovery control panel.

What I actually want to do is to create a shortcut or maybe a batch file so that in one click it will actually reboot my pc straight into the Startup Repair Tools.

Anyone got anymore ideas on this? I'm assuming it can be done with commands through Shutdown.exe but I can't seem to find anymore info on it.
