First Impressions – boot to repair – Windows 8 CTP

This will cover the new and much improved Startup Repair options boot-from-media experience. I’m installing the OS into a VM on HyperV using an .iso, besides the conveniences there of lab testing an OS this also provides the ability to capture screen snips in what normally isn’t a part of the process you would have that option. 

Previously when booting from media and needing to go to the repair tools took quite a while while network diagnostic scans took place and other check processes ran their course.  Now this process has been greatly improved removing all the typically unneeded pre-checks so that you immediately get to the correct tool you wish to use.  Thank you Microsoft for making an administrators life a lot easier during a crisis.
