  • I have a Lenovo A730 upgraded to Windows 10. How do I restart in Safe Mode?

    I have gone through settings, update& security, Recovery, Advanced Startup, Troubleshoot, Advanced Options, Startup Settings restart with F5 depressed but have not seen a screen allowing Safe Mode Restart.

  • Press Win + R keys to launch Run menu

    Type in msconfig hit the enter key

    Click Boot tab

    Under Boot options put a tick mark against Safe boot

    Click OK or, Apply

  • URGENT !!  How to recover after entering Safe mode as directed above, and now stopcode problem. System will not boot, just blue screen and endless circle ....

    Was on Pro Insider Preview Build 13328 and issues when Updating to Build 14332.  I thought all was resolve when system tried to Update to next Build 14342, but it stopped at ~ 60% and will not Update at all.

    Twp otehr desktop PCs on same home network (20Mbs) Updated without issue to 14332, and then 14342.
