If you are talking about recovering from a System Restore point vs a Reset with the option to keep files I believe Windows 10 disables System Restore by default. At least it used to.
If a restore point is not available you can copy the registry hives from C:\Windows\System32\config\regback to the hives in the config folder if the hives in Regback have a date later than the problem. First rename the hives in config. You can use the command prompt from a bootable Windows 10 disk to do this or a live linux disk.
See this video on the procedure using a command prompt.
Edit: Yes you can access system restore from the Windows install disk. Select Repair Computer at the Windows with the link and you will get the Advanced Options.
