    Should any of you run into black screen after reboot and be without Win 10 DVD - Try to boot a ubuntu based LiveCD and and after you have got to the ubuntu based desktop, reboot and remove LiveCd and boot into windows - that fixed it for me

    I used option 3 and went to an elevated command prompt and put this in
    bcdedit /set {current} safeboot network

    Then I used F8 to boot to safemode but the problem was I was in a continues loop, everytime I restarted it went right back to safemode. I had to use msconfig to untick safeboot and then i booted up normally

    bcdedit /set {current} safeboot network <-----How do i remove this ?

    Hello Ken, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    You would want to use the command in step 3 of OPTION THREE in the tutorial to remove this entry.

    I was testing this out. When I am using the cmd prompt within Windows 10, I can follow these instructions to a tee. There is a loader entry marked {current} if I just type in BCDEDIT. However, I created a Recover Drive and used it to boot up and entered the command prompt. Now, if I type in BCDEDIT /SET {CURRENT} SAFEBOOT NETWORK, it just errors out (error occurred while attempting to reference the specified entry). And it is true that if I type BCDEDIT, the only loader entry is referring to the Recover Drive (E: in this case) instead of C: . So is it not possible to set the Win 10 PC to a safeboot mode from the cmd prompt offered from the recover drive using BCDEDIT?

    Hello Starry,

    Are you able to boot into Safe Mode using OPTION ONE instead?

    If I go into the Advanced Options while Windows is up, then yes I can get to Startup Settings. But if I boot up on the Recover Drive (Flash Drive), then Startup Settings is not an option. I can get into Command Prompt, but perhaps it was never meant to allow me to access the Bootup Loader for the main PC when I am not booting up on it. I can get at the entries on the C drive ... it calls it the X drive, but it all the same files. So I could certainly change things. It's just that in that context, the current loader entry isn't loaded.

    What I have done in the past is set up the PCs to allow selection of a Safe Mode every time the PC boots and that works pretty well. On Windows 8, I had it set up as separate multi-boot entries in the boot menu. But Win 8.1 stopped allowing that and I found some other way to do it. I was just hoping that things had changed on Windows 10 and I would be able to get into safe mode on a PC that won't boot normally.

    Usually, you'll see X:\Sources> in a command prompt at boot.

    Odd. Typing bcdedit in a command prompt at boot should also show you the boot details like below.

    Usually at boot, you would have {default} as the identifier instead of {current} though.
