I received a blue screen error on my computer and get the details of the error as the system restarts immediately. So I rebooted the system and pressed F8 to open the Advanced Boot Options.

BSOD usually appears if Windows encountered a problem that it needs to stop completely. It can be hardware, software of driver related. If you have installed new software or hardware then got the error, then that may what cause the problem.
Try to do a system restore by logging into the safe mode and restore to a previous point prior to the installation.
Also, computer may experience BSOD if your Windows partition does not met the minimum amount of free space needed to boot up the Operating System. 15% of a drive’s capacity should be free at all times for windows to load.
You may also want to run a virus scan via the safe mode. Updating to available windows service packs and updates can also be of great assistance.

That option you selected after getting the blue screen error doesn’t do any good because it will basically just deactivate the auto-restart feature in Microsoft Windows that automatically restarts the operating system when a system failure occurs. This doesn’t fix the problem with the blue screen error. If you receive the BSOD error or the blue screen error, try booting your computer using the last known good configuration option.
Restart your computer then press F8 before the Windows logo appears. In Advanced Boot Options screen, scroll down and select “Last known good configuration” then hit Enter to boot in the selected option. See if this works. If this doesn’t work, try to recall the change you made to your computer prior to this error.
If you installed a program before the error happened, you need to uninstall that program to fix the blue screen error. If you added a new hardware and installed its driver, you need to uninstall that driver and remove the hardware from the motherboard. You can do this by booting your computer in Safe Mode. Repeat the same steps to go to Advanced Boot Options screen.
In there, select “Safe Mode” then hit Enter. Once in Safe Mode, uninstall the program you recently installed that you think cause the problem. Restart your computer afterwards and boot normally. See if this works.
