  1. Cannot Boot to Safe Mode Even in WinRE


    I need help as soon as possible!How it got started:I was installing the Microsoft Hyper-V virtual network adapter in Device Manager. It took some time, but eventually it was successfully installed. Then I noticed ntoskrnl.exe CPU usage suddenly gone up. I immediately tried uninstalling the network adapter in Device Manager. But it got stuck on "Uninstalling devices". Then I tried restarting my computer with hope of helping the uninstallation process. My computer was stuck for some time while restarting until finally it got a blue screen of death. Then I tried restarting my computer and it got

  2. Unable to boot the PC stuck in WinRE mode

    Hi,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    I understand how difficult it can be when the PC doesn’t work the way it is supposed to. I appreciate your effort in trying to resolve the issue by performing troubleshooting steps. For better understanding of the issue, please
    respond to the questions below:

    1. Are you aware of any changes being made to the PC?
    2. Do you receive any error code when you try to boot the PC normally?
    3. What are the troubleshooting steps you have tried?
    4. What is the error you receive while performing reset?
    5. What was the result of automatic repair?

    Meanwhile, you can try removing any external devices connected to the PC and check if you are able to boot the PC.

    However, I would suggest you to follow the steps mentioned below and check if that helps.

    Method 1:

    I would suggest you to try booting the PC to safe mode and check if that helps.
    Refer the article
    Start your PC in safe mode in Windows 10
    . If the PC is working fine in safe mode, perform a clean boot being in safe mode environment check.

    Performing a clean boot will start the computer with minimal set of drivers and programs, to determine whether a background program is causing the issue. Some of the Startup programs will not load after performing a clean boot
    on the computer. However, that functionality will return when you reset the computer to start normally after finishing the troubleshooting.


    To perform a clean boot on the computer refer to the article

    How to perform a clean boot in Windows
    .

    Note:
    Please refer the section Reset the computer to start normally after clean boot troubleshooting
    to boot the computer in to normal mode after troubleshooting.


    Method 2:

    Try troubleshooting startup issues. You can refer the article on

    troubleshooting common startup issues
    and see if that helps.

    Note: While performing chkdsk on the hard drive, if any bad sectors are found on the hard drive then chkdsk tries to repair that sector if any data available on that might be
    lost.


    If you have an external hard drive, you can take the backup of the data by following the steps mentioned below.

    1. Open command prompt window by following the article

      troubleshooting common startup issues
      .
    2. On the command prompt window type,
      notepad.exe and hit enter.
    3. Now click on File
      and click Open…
    4. On the Open file window, click on
      This PC
    5. Now navigate to the location
      C:\Users\UserName\
      select the folder that you want to backup to the external drive.

      Note:
      To see all the files on the Open dialog box, change the
      files of type
      to All files.

    6. Right click on the file/folder
      and select Send to and select the external hard drive.

    If the issue persist, please get back to us with the result of troubleshooting steps to assist you further with the issue.

    Regards,

    Cannot Enter Safe Mode / Computer boots normally

    I'm running Win 10 Pro 1903.

    Here are the steps I have taken to get into safe mode: Start button, settings, update and security, recovery, advanced startup, troubleshoot, advanced options, startup settings, restart. The computer boots normally, not in safe mode. Any suggestions would be most helpful. Thanks in advance for your help and interest. .

    Cannot Boot to Safe Mode Even in WinRE

    boot failure

    If you can access the Advanced options page, it means that you're able to pull up the Windows Recovery environment (WinRe). In WinRe, you perform a lot of ways to recover your computer. You can also boot your computer to safe mode or safe mode with networking
    in WinRe. We recommend booting up the computer in safe mode with networking for us to verify if your computer will function properly. To the computer in safe mode with networking in WinRe, follow these steps:

    • On the starting page of Windows Recovery, select Troubleshoot.
    • Choose Advanced options.
    • Click Startup settings.
    • Click Restart.
    • Choose the number that corresponds to Enable Safe Mode with Networking.
    • See if it will boot the computer in safe mode,

    Let us know how it goes.
