comment Windows 8.1 fails to optimize System Reserved partition
The event just says that an application called Microsoft-Windows-Defrag failed to optimize a drive. Not that the particular optimization it tried to apply was defragmenting.

comment Windows 8.1 fails to optimize System Reserved partition
It's an SSD. It doesn't get defragmented; it gets "optimized" (TRIM, I think). And that's just the way Windows set things up. In "Optimize Drives" it says the "System Reserved" drive "Needs optimization". I do not know why Windows thinks it needs optimization.

try issuing the command "shutdown /r /o" from the repair disc command prompt. That might get you to the advanced startup options.

No, the IPTV boxes are on the same wire as other things that I want to keep within my network. (See diagram)

comment IPTVs on home network
I get 1 IP address for my Internet use (the reason I need the router). Each IPTV box also gets an address provided my my ISP. All the routers I've seen only provide for 1 DMZ. Also, the DMZ is based on IP address, so the router would have to assign the IPTV an IP address rather than my ISP assigning it. Is there a router model that doesn't have these DMZ limitations?

Yes, they need direct access and cannot be NATted. I don't know exactly what services they require, but at boot they have to call home and they can't do that through my router (there is a non-helpful error message about being unable to contact a server).

They're wired. I can load DD-WRT on the router, but my research in to VLANs suggests it's a port-based solution. I may have many things on that port that I want on my home network and not directly accessing the Internet.
