    Mail it to me and I'll give it a proper burial. :rolleyes:

    But seriously,

    Although, you can access recovery options from PC settings, if Surface isn't booting the right way, you can easily press and hold the power button as soon it starts booting. This will obviously shutdown Windows incorrectly, but by performing the action three times, Windows will automatically boot into the Automatic Repair environment, where to can diagnose and fix the operating system.
