I dont know if what I want seems to exist lol. I accidentally set my max memory in Macon fig boot to 0. Yeah thats bad lol. So I havent had boot up issues in a very long time but I know life used to be way better then it seems now. For example their seems to be no dang way to boot to command prompt anymore. Command prompt with safe mode is useless since it trys to load drivers and apparently loads maximum memory 0. I know in the past I would just make a bootable repair disk and boot right to command prompt. At that point I would be able to fix my issue.

So my issue is the broken computer is windows 7. The other 2 working computers in the house are laptops with windows 10. I have no DVD burner or even dvd drives. So usb is only option. I also have no install cds. I believe I have a windows 10 install cd that I never used that I cant find and I gave up since theres no dvd drive on the computers anyhow.

Everything I can find seems to require me to have Stuff I dont have or a lot of work. Is there no simple way to make my computer boot to a command prompt from a usb drive? I just need access to bcdedit so I can fix this stupid memory issue

Update: so I decided to purchase windows 7 pro tommorow and put the iso on usb drive. Will that flash drive then allow me to boot from it to the command prompt? Because I don’t want it to go installing windows 7 when it runs lol. My crypto wallets are on this HD

Possibly setting the bios to default worth a try.

Bcdedit
