    Or you can try the command bcdedit /set {default} safeboot network

    (leave out network if you don't want networking).

    Is'nt that the screen you get when you run msconfig from the "run" command rather than the "cmd" prompt? maybe wrong
    No its not ....try it yourself, I already have done it. It will run from either way.

    in the search box type run and its the top app (Run desktop app)
    msconfig DOES RUN from the Command Prompt OR by using the run command. In this case the user can only access his DOS Prompt ....nothing else.

    Your only choice might end up doing a Repair Install. Read the tutorial and see if it helps you.

    In the future hvphotog Once you get your Windows OS back and running correctly. I suggest you make a complete image backup using Macrium Reflect, and keep that image on a 2nd drive, or a External drive (Best Choice) so if something like this happens again, you will only need to restore your saved image. Macrium Reflect is a Free program.

    msconfig doesn't work from the cmd at boot. You can use bcdedit to set safemode though
