Windows 7: Shutdown argument /o missing in cmd

04 Feb 2017   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium x64

Then how would one proceed to shutdown and reboot to the Advanced Boot Options menu in windows 7 without having to press F8 when the PC starts up? Is there any replacement for the /o parameter that is in later versions of windows?

When you are using the Remote Desktop tool, there are no "Shutdown" and/or "Restart" options in the Start Menu on the remote PC.
