    Booted Into safe mode error, cant get in now at all


    Windows 8.1
    Hi Guys I hope someone can help!

    I tried to boot into safe mode so I pressed win key + R got run cmd , typed msconfig and instead of going to "start up" I clicked on "Boot" and "Network" and then "Restart".

    Upon restarting I got the "enter password" so I did and now it doesn't recognize it, I have a 4 fig password.
    ( I did have another P/W which I used when I first got the machine I kept forgetting so I changed to the 4 Fig instead so I wondering if by some weird reason its looking for the old P/W, then I'm defiantly screwed!)

    I tried to go in as a guest account but it didn't work either! Well I thought I'll do a complete shutdown and restart which didn't work as well. I rebooted and went F2/Del and after a minute up came the UEFI files I 'm used to the old BIOS boot screens so I didn't know where to start and that's where I am now.

    Can someone please keep me?

    "The System" is not seeing C drive that's why I can't do anything in either system restore or refresh!
    When I tried to re-install windows 8, the partition table that appears so you can choose which to use didn't show C drive at all. The only way in is thru command prompt and I don't know what to type anyway!
