    This may be the same as Josey's, but it adds convenient context menu entries to the Desktop Context Menu.

    Reason I mentioned that tutorial is that it makes the right-click context menu entries available when you are already booted to safe mode, and easy to boot normal back again.

    Hi, you probably would be able to use your PIN if you log in to Safe Mode with Networking.

    The key is the need for internet access for your PIN to be recognised.
    Can anyone confirm this? (I don't use a PIN myself).

    @dalchina

    PINs are stored on the machine only.


    PIN is local to the device

    A password is transmitted to the server -- it can be intercepted in transmission or stolen from a server. A PIN is local to the device -- it isn't transmitted anywhere and it isn't stored on the server.

    I tried your suggestion in Safe Mode with Networking. Network is not activated until an identity is established. First pic shows Password box only and Network is disconnected.

    Thanks, I've never used PINs, but did a little research and found a MS rep suggesting this... ah well..!

    Every time I've tried to boot someone into safe mode, it has always required the password, and never a PIN.
