Can't boot in to standard mode
« on: April 08, 2020, 12:10:06 PM »
Chose to have tweaking boot into safe mode. When ask for a password, I forgot my Microsoft password. SO, I went to another machine, logged into my Microsoft account, and said that I had forgotten it, after a few hoops, I reset my password.

HOWEVER, tweaking while in Safe Mode, won't accept my new password, and I'm in an endless loop.

I know it's correct because I can login to my Microsoft account on another machine with the new password. HELP

Thank you for the response. I didn't have a problem resetting the password. I can login using the new password on another laptop, with no problem. But when I use the same new password on the one I was using Tweaking on, it won't accept it.

I thought maybe it was the fact it didn't have an ethernet cable plugged in, but that didn't work either.

I also tried the bcdedit /delete safemode thing (can't remember the exact command, but I used it), and that didn't work either.

Still looking for a way out. THANKS AGAIN, I appreciate it.

Try that method in the article which sends you a code where it should reset your MS account password for both machines.

I've changed it again. Problem is I think, is that Tweaking put it in safe mode (at my request), but in Safe Mode there NO WIRELESS connectivity to the internet. No port for a cable, so the password can't be verified, because it's not getting to the internet. Is there some way to cancel safe mode even via powershell or command line?

I've tried bcdedit to remove safemode, but that doesn't work.

Sorry for the late reply but I'm limited to when I can go on my laptop because of back problems.

Win 10 disables wireless in that mode but you can still manually connect to wireless.

When on the desktop in that mode press CTRL ALT DELETE then click on the wireless icon and then on your SSID and select Connect.

Click on Cancel where you should then see a full WiFi icon.

I assume the bcdedit cmd you used was - bcdedit /deletevalue {current or default} safeboot

To get your Identifier, open a Command Prompt (Admin)  and enter bcdedit.

Scroll down to Windows Boot Loader to check your identifier.

As you will see, mine is {current}

Windows Boot Manager
--------------------
identifier              {bootmgr}

displayorder            {current}

timeout                 30

Windows Boot Loader
-------------------
