    Need to login using command prompt after “safe mode with command prompt”

    Locked

    by joestar7 ·

    Hi,

    I need to “simply” login using command prompt after “safe mode with command prompt” without all the available bells and whistles. Am not good at “DOS”

    Thanks,
    Joe

      You don’t login

      You get to run command line utilities and diagnostic tools if your system is completely toasted.

      Given your level of expertise, what is your issue that you feel you need to command prompt for and for which no other Safe Mode stuff is appropriate?

        Hi,

        The solution to my problem requires me to log on using a command prompt in safe mode. All the command prompt syntaxes are too complicated. Can’t imagine why this command needs to be so complex, eg Net User [username [password | *] [options]] [/DOMAIN].

        Thanks,

      Safe mode is NOT “DOS command line”

      If you’re talking about Windows, then, since several versions, Safe Mode is still a graphic interface. If login is needed to start windows, then you’ll still have to enter your login credentials.

      Safe Mode simply means that Windows won’t fire up all autostart programs, additional drivers etc. If something in your normal startup settings causes windows to fail, then you have good chances that Safe Mode will present you with a working environment. But your screen resolution will be VGA, your internet connection may not work etc.

      If you really need the command line, you’d have to start an instance of “cmd.com” from windows. (Flag+R, enter the word CMD and hit enter)

      EditAdd: After carefully reading all other posts in this topic, I’m still not sure managed to understand the question correctly, so I may actually be off topic. If that’s the case, then I hope you still find your way forward.
