Windows 7: Stuck in SafeMode Alternate Shell (minimal)

Stuck in SafeMode Alternate Shell (minimal)

I actually selected Alternate Shell minimal safe mode and now I'm stuck in it.

How do I get out of this and into regular Safe Mode (with a GUI)?

Alternate Shell is all command line so please reply with actual cammands... Thanks!

Here's some things that I can think of.

When you restarted, have you tried pressing F8 and selected "Safe Mode" instead of "Safe Mode with Command Prompt"?

If that doesn't work, there should be an option in msconfig for that.
