Hit f8 on startup with restore disk in the drive and then be ready to provide admin creditials  if you go to restore make sure power adapter is connected so you can get through the restore period
From there
 you can check using[windows memory Diagnostic]
Startup Repair, system restore while preserving current data, system image recovery, command prompt which give you access to other command line utilities like sfc /scannow or chdsk the OS drive after dismounting the drive
You dont have to set optical drive for boot order just use f8 on boot...of course you have access to safe mode also with this scenario which allows you to barebones your startup files that might be causing problems...
what kind of problem are you trying to solve?
