    You might have some other problem. Try to get into safe mode with no external device connected.
    Can a boot loader pass the safemode command to 10 ? Or are they only good for different OS's not so much custom OS modes.

    topgundcp you are absolutely right, it is my 2TB Seagate external HDD that prevents my Win 10 booting into safe mode.

    Thank you for the help.
