I have a PC that continues to BSOD on FLTMGR.SYS. I had hoped to boot to safe mode to return to a previous restore point but the BSODs as well. Before I fallback to a reinstall, is there a way I can use a PE disk like BartPE to boot and kickoff the return to a previous restore point?

OK. I found the answer. I was considering a re-install so I booted to the install media and selected Recover Windows instead of Install. From there I was given a menu with several options including Restore System. It allowed me to recover to a previous System Restore point.
