It's a bug!! Read this Multi-boot BCD entries -some guides are WRONG - Tftpd32 - reboot.pro
So do:
Code:
bcdedit/deletevalue {ramdiskoptions} description
command successfully? Menu shown correctly on reboot?

I restarted couple of time and tried different options.

Pressing F4 doesn't do anything. How ever selecting the second option i.e ramdiskoptions it is leading to recovery part.

But I doubt if my computer is infected with virus or so, will I still get boot menu option? how do we set F4 to ramdiskoption directly?

bcdedit/enum all
again please. Looks like something is stuck for unknown reason. Why a hotkey F4 to a bootmenu? Normally F4 was a hotkey for the by manufacturer hacked mbr.

A virus can destroy anything on disk, so mbr and bootmenu as well. That's why a recovery partition is useless. Make backups instead.

What happens if you do:
Code:
bcdedit/set {ramdiskoptions} description "Restore to Factory"
And reboot? Don't care to much about the name of the entry.
