    I found that if you physically turn off your machine immediately after the cyan windows logo appears (before getting to the log-on screen) two times this brought up the recovery mode, so that might help in the situation you mentioned.

    I have been on this for 8 hours trying EVERYTHING and nothing worked. I tried this and I was finally able to get into system restore. I was stuck at the login screen with no box to put password and was getting frustrated. Thank you!!!

    Like others I had a problem exiting - Command Prompt Safe Mode.
    There is no taskbar in Command Prompt Safe Mode.
    Windows Key + "R" did nothing so there was no "MSCONFIG" exit.

    Finally found my way out using an old Vista laptop and searching the internet.

    Boot into Safe Mode on Windows 10 - Windows 10 Performance Maintenance Tutorials

    Type bcdedit /deletevalue {current} safeboot and hit Enter key. This will turn off safe mode.
    Close the Command Prompt window and restart Windows 10. :)

    I found out the hard way that simply not closing the Command Prompt window before restarting resulted in
    still being stuck in Safe Mode. The smallest things can cause confusion.


    The
    current in the command above is whatever your identifier is.

    I prefere to activate the old F8 boot menu

    Enable or Disable F8 Advanced Boot Options in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Performance Maintenance Tutorials

    you can access it during boot phase pressing F8 or Shift+F8

    C:\Windows\System32\bcdedit.exe /set {default} bootmenupolicy legacy
    executed in an elevated command prompt

    is quite useful in case of BSOD
    or when you cannot boot from any other reasons
    or your OS is virused

    and you have some other interesting options there
    like do not restart automatically in case of BSOD , for example

    works in 8.x also in 10.x
    in xp and 7 this is set as default on a clean install.

    Can this be done from the boot drive, not from within windows? Also, if start-up repair doesn't work, nor any repair from outside windows, would being able to boot from safe mode give me more chances to solve my issue? Or do I likely have to do a clean install?

    Thanks.

    Hello rseiler,

    If you like, you could use the option in the tutorial below to add Safe Mode to your boot menu to have available if needed when you don't have any boot media to use instead. This is the same in Windows 10 as Windows 8. :)

    Hello Jim, :)

    Yes, you could use Option Two in the tutorial to add Safe Mode at boot.

    I'm not sure if Safe Mode may help with your issue here, but it's worth a try.

    I had the same thought, so I checked reagentc /info and it shows the recovery partition to be enabled. Also shift+restart from power menu does not do anything. I am investigating.
    My laptop has started behaving like this - see No Advanced Restart Options

    Hello Steve, :)

    Odd. Do you have an Insider build installed? If so, it could be a bug.

    If you set a custom reset recovery image, are able to boot to advanced startup afterwards without a USB connected?

    No, I don't have an insider build. My installation was a clean install around Jan 16 and I'm currently on v1607 Build 14393.1715. I don't have the CU since it hasn't been offered to me yet for my Dell laptop via Windows Update.

    I set the recovery image as you suggested (see below) but the laptop still just restarts as normal when I try to enter advanced options using Restart + Shift key or Settings / Recovery / Advanced Startup. The command regentc /boottore does restart the PC with the advanced recovery options (this worked before I created the reset recovery image). What else should I consider?

    Update - I solved it. I entered these commands. Reagentc reported it was already enabled but the Advanced Boot options now appear.


    1. diskpart
    2. select disk 0
    3. select partition 1
    4. assign letter=R
    5. exit
    6. reagentc.exe /setreimage /path R:\Recovery\WindowsRE /target C:\windows


    Reagentc / info now reports:

    Interesting, but I'm glad you got it sorted.
