Windows 7: Turn off Safe Mode boot from Command Line?

Turn off Safe Mode boot from Command Line?

I have a laptop from a friend who contactd Dell about an issue. The person at Dell told him to use msconfig to set safe mode minimal.

During further discussioin with the Dell rep, he told my friend he needed to do a factory restore. I've done that for my friend, not realizing he had set the flag for Safe Mode boot in MSConfig, and now the restore can't finish because it keeps trying to boot into safe mode.

Is there a way to turn this off in the command prompt. I can get to the Startup Tools of windows 7 with CTRL+F11.

Any help on this is greatly appreciated. I can also get into the system files with linux to edit if needed. I just don't know what to do.

Thanks,

Hi bmcgonag,

Follow the steps listed in the following tutorial (Option 3: Using BCDEDIT Command in a Command Prompt; serial number 6) Safe Mode. This is likely to help you get the notebook started in Windows normal mode.

Hope this helps. Do reply if you have any further questions. I would be glad to assist.
