    Hi!

    Since the last few updates I cant boot into Safe Mode by pressing Shift+Restart from the Startmenu nor starting the UEFI stuff.

    Anybody else noticed this?

    I am running 10240 Pro rev 16384.

    You're not holding shift down long enough...
    Just guessing here

    Type this into a elevated cmd.

    Code:
    bcdedit /set {default} bootmenupolicy legacy

    Thanks, it works!

    But I am still wondering why I am not able to get the "Special Menu" when using SHIFT+RESTART in the Start Menu and I tried to hold shift longer, but it refuses to show up.
    Yesterday or the day before I had no problems with it. :-/

    Probably missing the bcdedit /timeout option... See this thread for better snip

    Should boot you into RE. Is it enabled? From admin command prompt type:
    Code:
    reagentc /info

    On an IREP webcast earlier tonight, a MS rep stated that Safe Mode will be available in Windows 10 within the next 30-60 days...

    Yup, it is. Still can not start it. I wanted to post an image link of my reagentc results, but I am not allowed till I reach 20 forum posts. :sneaky:

    I have found if you try to switch back from legacy to standard it does not work, have you seen that too?

    I made a batch file for booting into Recovery.

    @echo off
    reagentc /boottore
    shutdown -r -t 1 -f


    I still don't know why the hell I can't access it from the Start menu.

    Doesn't work for me, your command just restarts my computer and let it boot again into Windows.

    Well, I've solved my problem, so thanks to all anyways. :clap:
