    Stuck in safemode without networking. Don't know password


    Hey

    My video drivers had issues and I decided to go to safemode and DDU . Little did I know that I couldn't use the pin and had to use a password. I'm now stuck in safe mode without network so I can't change password either.

    Tried
    - bcdedit /deletevalue blah blah
    -bcdedit /set safemode network blah blah
    - enabling elevated admin but for some reason the 0038 line where already at (10) enabled. Can't see it still.
    When I try bcdedit /enum I get boot config error
    When I try bcdedit /deletevalue {current} it says wrong entry identifier. And I can't see what my identifier is either because bcdedit /enum or /v doesn't work.

    I'm lost right now and if I have to clean install my PC I'll just leave and put my PC with brand new parts in the closet because I'm so mad rn.

    Instead of going all those troubles, it seems a fresh install is quite in order. (and no, banging your PC with a hammer is a bad idea!)
    Once you have access to another PC, spare the troubles and refresh it all (and a sigh of relief!)

    There's more troubles if I have to clean install. All my settings and applications. Stream overlays for OBS, mic files. Everything was perfect until I entered safemode. There must be a solution ??

    Maybe I found something, try this! Get out of safe mode without password

    Then well... Break out the Windows CD (or USB) and start cleaning new. Sorry.

    Try a Repair Install, this may not work in Safe Mode, but worth a shot

    Maybe setting the DVD drive as a boot device in the BIOS instead of the HDD? Maybe?
