Hey guys. Ive been having issues with my laptop freezing, so from msconfig I configured my system to start in safe mode in order to backup my files. However when restarting my laptop I'm unable to login and enter my pin - I'm guessing because the WiFi has been disabled and that's required to authenticate my pin with Microsoft. This is the error I'm getting: "Something Happened and Your Pin Isn’t Available". I used the windows boot disk to access the command prompt but the following commands do not work

bcdedit /deletevalue {current} safeboot

bcdedit /deletevalue {default} safeboot

I'm getting this error...

"The specified entry identifier is not valid
The parameter is incorrect"
also this one for the latter command "The boot configuration data store could not be opened. The requested system cannot be found"

System restore won't work either.
