    Troubleshoot option doesn't show up when I try to boot into safe mode


    I tried booting into safe mode in the setteings/update and security/recovery/restart.

    When it restarts though, it opens up a blue screen with only two options: turn of computer, and continue to windows. There is no troubleshooting option. I tried restarting from the login screen and holding the shift key. Still no luck.

    :)

    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. .

  3. Can't boot into Normal/Safe Mode with Networking, only safe mode...

    Good Evening,
    I could do with some pointers on resolving an issue. I can only boot into windows in safe mode in Windows 10. Normal mode and safe mode with networking doesn't work. The problem occurred after a windows update. I have removed the latest updates that were installed and cleared any pending ones but it still won't boot properly. I have also run the troubleshooter and tried to recovery to an earlier date which also doesn't work.
    The laptop is a HP ENVY 17 notebook. At boot it just gets to the HP logo with the circular loading icon and no further and can only boot it into safe mode. Can anyone recommend the next steps? I have also tried the following;

    • stopping startup items
    • uninstalling hardware drivers
    • removing recent software
    • running troubleshooters at boot
    • sfc scan
    • diagnostic/selective startups with minimal services running
    Would the fact that I cant boot into Safe Mode with Networking imply its a network driver related issue?
    Bit of a dead end really, any help would be much appreciated
    Kind regards
    Trevor

    Troubleshoot option doesn't show up when I try to boot into safe mode

    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.

    Ok I did a complete format and I still have this issue. The funny thing is that I also had an issue with screenshots, which they would not be saved. I saw the registry fix to add the screenshotindex and to point the folder at user shell folders, but even this after the format is still here.

    Could it be the iso I have? The safe mode issue might have started after I installed the latest fast ring update using the iso, on top of the same version, to fix the screenshot bug. I'll wait for the next iso, I'm not gonna waste another 2 hours to format the pc.

    It's because of a bug in Fast ring updates
