Use of tweaking.com repair and switching to Safe Mode
« on: December 09, 2018, 09:12:54 AM »
I am running the latest 1809 Build on Windows 10 and have discovered that when opening tweaking.com repairs and hitting the Safe Mode button, my PC will restart and enter into Safe Mode no problem. But when it comes time to open my start screen, I have no way to enter neither a PIN nor PASSWORD. The screen comes up blank with no options to do anything.

Any suggestions or thoughts on this matter?

Can you power shutdown and restart then go into Safe Mode with Networking by pressing and holding the SHIFT key throughout a restart to navigate to the Startup Settings to see if you get the same.

This will determine if it is the program or your machine.

I tried the SHIFT button and it didn't work so I went into Recovery and opened Advance Startup mode and got into Safe Mode from there. I then opened tweaking.com repairs and everything went fine. All I wanted to do was check reparse points, enviremental, my hard drive and sfc/ scannow. Everything went perfect. That's the way I will have to use the repair program for now.

Pressing and holding the SHIFT button throughout a restart should have also gotten you there.

Sometimes booting into that mode and back to normal mode can resolve some anomalies, so try using the program again to boot into that mode to see if you get the same problem.

I opened tweaking.com repairs normally using the Safe Mode button and came up with the same results. Nothing. It boots into Safe Mode alright, but no way to enter password nor PIN. The screen comes up with the background picture and I can restart or shutdown, but no picture and no way to enter my PC.

Okay - I don't know why this is happening so I'll pass this onto Shane.

How long is it since you updated to 1809 ?

You normally get 10 days to revert to the previous build and if this still applies to you, perhaps you could see if it will revert then try booting into that mode again with the program.

This is what I did:

I was running Preview Builds that were giving me problems so I reinstalled Windows 10 1709 with the HP Stick that I was given to me for a factory reinstall. I have a HP ENVY.

I then proceeded to update through Windows Update to the latest Windows 1809 Build. 17763.168

I did nothing else besides reinstall all of my apps and programs.

So, you would like me to go back to 1709 to see if it works on that build? I'll think about that for a bit. As I stated before, tweaking does work perfectly for me by going into Safe Mode through the normal computer routine. But I understand that you want to know if it's the program or my PC. Sounds legit. I just may try it and get back at you.

Okay - Thanks.

There have been some teething problems reported between 1809 and WR 4.4.0 in what it was intended to achieve, but yours is the first for this problem.

I've emailed Shane about your problem with a link to your thread but I'll have to wait until he gets back to me on that.

Yes. I know. I've been up to date on the problems with 1809. Bugs everywhere. I believe that they are still not over.
Just to let you know, Tweaking.com did work on 1709. It stopped when moving up to 1809.
I was an Insider for a while but not now. It did not work on those builds either but let's forget those. Too tricky. I gave it up except for the slow ring. Pretty much stable.

Okay - thanks for that, so it looks like it is a problem with 1809 for you.

Yes it does. I was pretty sure it wasn't the program, especially when you had not gotten notice from anyone else. I didn't think that I could be the only one.
Will try on next update and keep you informed.

I will leave this open. I'm curious if anyone else may somewhere down the have this problem.

The only other outstanding problem is one where 4.4.0 did not do what it was intended in that it failed to release from Safe Mode for one member, so Windows Defender was not able to be loaded.

Yes. That is true. So far, if it's only me, I'm still wondering if my HP has something. Someone else may pop up.

If you can log in normally when using Windows to boot into Safe Mode with Networking but not when you use the program to boot into that mode, then there must be a conflict somewhere, but as only necessary drivers are loaded and no 3rd party programs, then I don't know what it could be.

I'm waiting of Shane to get back to me on this.
