I'm working on an XPhome toshiba laptop. It kept hanging in trying to get into Safe mode. Instead of using F8, I used msconfig to reboot in safe mode. Now I can't get back to regular boot.

How do I get back to regular booting? Since I can't completely get into Safe mode, I'm really locked out in doing anything.

That is in the Boot.ini file so Boot with BartPE or Recovery Console and change the Boot.ini
  I attached what it normally looks like.  Is a hidden file on c:\ , so you may have to remove the -h -s attributes to modify it then add them back on afterwards.
