Quick Way to Schedule Reboot in Windows
article #467, updated 50 days ago
Run these in an administrative or SYSTEM-level command prompt.
Under 7/2008R2 and before, we can schedule for 4:00 AM tomorrow:
AT 4:00 c:\windows\system32\shutdown.exe -f -r -t 0
and we can schedule for 4:00 AM next Monday:
AT 4:00 /next:Monday c:\windows\system32\shutdown.exe -f -r -t 0
In Windows 8.1/2012R2 and later it’s a bit harder, we have to specify the actual full date in the format below:

8.0 and 2012R1 appear to require a “/Y” on the very end.

It’s available in 64-bit and 32-bit versions. ImgBurn was go-to for a long time, but it hasn’t had updates since 2013. Quite a few others are gone too. But the old reliable CDBurnerXP is still being kept up to Windows 10 as well:

Many old friends, e.g. Hiren’s and UBCD4Win, are no longer in development, and do not boot on quite a lot of newer hardware; for a while there was no clear replacement. The only one known to this writer that works well on current made-for-10 hardware, is Medicat:
