Windows 10: Accidentally checked selective startup with safe mode. Seems stuck

    Hello, this is the command from an admin command prompt within Windows:
    bcdedit /deletevalue {current} safeboot

    However in your scenario you would be booting to a command prompt from a live boot disk as you can't log in.
    The converse to enable safe mode is
    bcdedit /set {current} safeboot minimal

    Caution: inappropriate use may render your PC unbootable.

    Well, if you manage to boot USB, run CMD and enter:

    bcdedit /deletevalue {current} safeboot
    bcdedit /deletevalue {default} safeboot
