    During the computer turning on, I picked up the keyboard and accidentally pressed a key that apparently starts system recovery.

    The system recovery hasn't yet started but it refuses to allow me to cancel.

    Picture related, I'm stuck on this screen.

    If I press next, all my files are in danger of being deleted, so I havent done that.
    If I press cancel, which I have done, it asks "cancel and reboot?" And when I click yes on that, the reboot takes me right back into this same screen.

    I'm unsure of how long I can keep the computer turned on, and on this screen, so this is somewhat urgent.

    PLEASE HELP!

    Resolved.

    Clicking next produced an error screen, which offered to repair instead of recovered. I pounced on the chance and clicked YES for the repair.

    Since the repair isn't destructive of files, I didn't lose most of my data.
