    Not able to boot into Safe mode - it reboots when selecting the option


    (19587.1000 version)

    So I recently tried to boot into safe mode to uninstall gpu drivers. I usually go via pressing shift button when restarting.

    If i'm not mistaken, the procedure goes as follows: Pressing the restart button, troubleshoot page shows, select startup menu then continues with restarting the pc and startup settings show and by selecting the safe mode it continues into safe mode.

    For me, after I press the restart button, it fully reboots into troubleshoot menu and after choosing startup settings it again fully reboots, and after selecting the safe mode it again reboots into normal mode.

    It seems like I'm missing the safe boot partition or whatever.

    Things I did:

    • I dont have a recovery
    • Tried to download latest fast version and installed via opening the iso in windows environment. Didnt help
    • sfc scannow completes without issues
    • DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth completes successfully
    • DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth goes to 100%
    • DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth goes to 84.9% "The restore operation completed successfully. The operation completed successfully."
    • Tried to go via the msconfig. Ended getting stuck at bootloop in which I had to use the " bcdedit /deletevalue {current or default} safeboot " to get out (from troubleshoot page cmd)
    • From troubleshoot options I tried to repair the OS, but it wont finish.


    Is there any way to avoid the complete format?

    edit: This happened after I installed latest fast ring version. Prior that, I could go into safe mode

    Thanks.

    :)

  4. Not able to boot into Safe mode - it reboots when selecting the option

    Windows 10 BSOD with mouse; no option to boot to SAFE MODE in Advanced Options

    Hi,



    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Community.



    Also adding to ZigZag3143 (Windows IT Pro MS –MVP) point, you can also check other options from the link below to enter into the Safe Mode.

    Safe mode is a diagnostic mode that starts your computer with limited drivers necessary to run Windows. The words
    Safe Mode appear at the corners of your monitor to identify which Windows mode you are using.



    Expand the options to boot into Safe Mode:

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-in/windows-10/start-your-pc-in-safe-mode



    To exit from Safe mode follow the steps below:



    • Open Run command by pressing Windows key + R
      on the keyboard and type msconfig in the command box.
    • Under Boot tab uncheck the Safe boot
      option.
    • Reboot the system and check if the changes are effective.


    If the issue persist, I suggest you to upgrade Windows 10 by downloading the
    ISO file from the
    Media Creation Tool
    and check if you are able to get the lost
    Windows Recovery Environment options on your PC.



    Write back to us with the status of the issue for further assistance. Your reply is important for us to ensure we assist you accordingly.



    Thank you.
