How do I get this *#%% Compaq Evo out of safe boot (alternateshell)???
Posted on 2004-08-29
I am working on a Compaq Evo N600C laptop. By mistake I set bootini to boot into safemode minimal(alternateshell). That puts me into a command prompt with no graphical interface. So I can't issue 'msconfig' and get the startup menu again to get back into normal mode.
When I reboot and hit f8 it gives me the startup boot menu, but whatever I specify, normal, safe, safe with networking, it always puts me back into safe mode with no icons and no start menu. I need this machine up and running to give to the customer by 4PM today. How do I get out of this?
Ps. In case you see multiple questions with this same title, I just tried to enter this same question using the Opera browser. But when I hit ‘submit’ nothing happened. Now I’m trying it under IE.
