Like the title says. I tried to reboot into safemode from Command Prompt using these instructions  


This will set the safemode switch:
bcdedit /set {current} safeboot minimal 
with networking:
bcdedit /set {current} safeboot network 
then reboot the machine with
shutdown /r 
to put back in normal mode via dos:
bcdedit /deletevalue {current} safeboot


and now nothing seems to boot anymore, i've got a black screen and one short beep at startup, and that's all.
Any solutions?

It appears some part of your master boot record file is now corrupt. You'll have to boot into the recovery partition or disk, get to a command prompt, and type fixmbr. If that doens't work, you'll have to use the recovery partition/disk to reinstall the OS.
