Corazon,

Thank you. It should be in the order of the command below instead, but it should work in a elevated command prompt to remove Safeboot and allow a normal boot again.

bcdedit /deletevalue {default} safeboot

Thanks again for helping me. But it is still not working. When i type:

bcdedit {default} /deletevalue safeboot

It says:
The specified command line is not valid.

If I write:

bcdedit /deletevalue safeboot {default}

It says:
The specified entry identifier is not valid.

If I write:

bcdedit /deletevalue safeboot {windows 7}

It says:

the delete command specified is not valid.

So close but not there yet.

Hello InsideDK,

Look at METHOD THREE in the tutorial below. It has been updated to help you with this.

Safe Mode

From your screenshot, you should use the command exactly as is below for this:

bcdedit /deletevalue {default} safeboot

So I accidentally tried uping the refresh rate on my monitor to 100hz and i got stuck with no output to my monitor. Booted into safe mode using the "bcdedit /set {default} safeboot minimal" cmd and i was able to successfully boot windows and remove nividia control panel. Now when i remove safe boot check mark under msconfig it goes from normal boot to selective? How do i get it back to normal boot, with out the safeboot check box filling back in?
