    Wow.

    Okay can you follow the steps to do a system restore. If not can you describe step by step what is happening.

    I'm using an Alienware 17 with Windows 10 installed on the SSD and an HDD installed for storage.
    With Windows 10 on one drive and data storage on another also consider if, at this point, a clean reinstall might be the simplest and best guarantee of getting back to a working OS

    Please follow my directions into safe mode and see if msconfig still has check mark.

    If that doesn't work follow my instructions to get to system restore and you will see if restore points are available. TrustMe has an alternate to invoke.

    Thanks
    I got command prompt from advanced boot options, but msconfig won't launch from there. It still won't get me into safe mode with command prompt.

    I'm not sure if any kind of reinstall is going to be possible because neither linux nor the windows recovery drive seem to recognize the C:/ drive at all

    I do have quite a bit of data on the windows drive, including licensed software like photoshop and premiere elements. Only some of my data is on the D:/ drive.

    I don't know if you want to spend any money to get out of your situation but read post 16 in this thread.

    okay, you can't get to safe mode from Command prompt, it doesn't work that way. I maybe misunderstanding you. Can you confirm you follow these steps to get to Safe mode

    You hold the shift key down and restart your computer.
    Click on "Trouble Shooting"
    Click "Advance Options"
    Click "Start Up Settings"
    Click "Restart"
    After restart press option 4
    Machine boots (takes some time) and presents you with a password screen.

    If this doesn't work can you tell us where it breaks.

    If it works, right click Windows Start, Command Prompt(admin), type Msconfig

    Or in Safe Mode, press CTRL+ALT+Del and start the Task Manager, go to File/Run New Task and type msconfig. Go to the Boot tab and uncheck Safe Boot.

    This is exactly what I do, but my problem is that I am unable to log in to safe mode at all.

    Unfortunately I can't log in to safe mode, that's my whole problem.
