    Windows 10 (64-bit)

    Black screen on login! Please help!


    So.. I screwed up..

    I used a small program called something like Windows 10 Login Background Changer (something along those lines) and when I restarted my computer, it never reached the login screen. I can move the mouse and open Magnifier (was pushing random controls), but I don't know how to get past here.

    ... This was a terrible idea

    Boot with advanced startup and Use System Restore.
    Or boot into Safe Mode and uninstall that software.

    I'm following this guide (http://www.tomshardware.com/faq/id-2...e-windows.html) but when I typed the command BCDEDIT /SET BOOTMENUPOLICY LEGACY the prompt says "The boot configuration data store could not be opened. The requested system device cannot be found." Since I'm already at the command prompt, are there any other alternatives?

    bcdedit /set {default} safeboot minimal

    This one gives me the same problem. The top of the prompt window says Administrator: X:\windows\SYSTEM32\cmd.exe

    What I'm confused about is that I don't have an X drive. Is this why it isn't working?
