I was working on a friends computer and HP Pavillion 20 with Windows 8. It had some kind of virus. I was unable to do anything in normal mode so from command prompt I entered safe mode (using "bcdedit /set {default} safeboot network.") Because of how little he had on the computer I ended up doing a system recovery without exiting the safe mode loop. Now the recovery cant finish cause it is set to load into safe mode. However I don't know how to exit the safe mode boot. How do i exit safe mode in this situation?

Thanks
Scott

Hi

 

From an elevated command prompt . enter  bcdedit /deletevalue {default} safeboot 

 

If that didn't work, try bcdedit /deletevalue {current} safeboot

You can open a command prompt from either Windows 8 installation DVD or System Repair Disc. You can either borrow a disc from a friend or create a "System Repair Disc" from another working machine.
