Well, whether I help or not, I do like seeing problems solved and situations understood. So in the end it was something so simple as the name of a shortcut...? I do tend to overlook the simplest possibilities though...

You and Brick helped a lot. On top of your great help and knowledge, you made me keep understanding and keep searching.
Thanks a lot for both of you.

run as admin makes no difference

When i right click "Run as Administrator" on the command prompt shortcut from the start menu, it opens a C:\users\<user>\ and not the System32 folder. (and then when i type "bcdedit" it doesnt recognize the command)

But when i right click "Run as Admin" on the actual cmd.exe in System32 (or just click open) it opens in the System32 folder (and in both cases, Admin or not, it runs "bcdedit")

What's possibly wrong with my system ?

Hello Monigraphix,

Are you logged in as standard user, administrator, or built-in "Administrator"?

Do you have UAC turned on or off?

You might turn on UAC, and see how it works afterwards.

If it still doesn't work, then as a test, create a new administrator account, and try it while logged in the new account.

In Elevated Command mode: how do I navigate to c:.../Drivers to change a *.sys file name?
I got a BSOD: I determined it was timntr.sys from Seagate DiscWizard.
I could not uninstall/repair DiscWizard in Safe Mode, so I renamed timntr.sys to timntrOLD.sys:
Now I cant get into Safe Mode, but can get into Command mode.
C: only shows two files..Help

Hello Harald,

You could type copy and paste the command below to go the the Drivers folder.

cd C:\Windows\System32\drivers


You could also use this below to add Open Command Window Here as Administrator to make it easy to do so by being able to right click on the Drivers folder and this option to open a elevated command prompt already opened at this location.

Open Command Window Here as Administrator

Hope this helps,
Shawn
