Playing with msconfig max memory settings

Stuck in boot up I’ve tried looking for cmd commands to fix but came short on options that lead to dead ends. 
I’m trying to reset the max memory setting so I can boot up normal I’ve tried all advanced settings and nothing worked. I need my files for work. I’m self employed and if I lose it I lose track of money logs and everything else. I don’t have a backup.

 

windows 10 error said critical boot failed

 

the only thing I can run currently is windows Administrator: X:\windows\system32\cmd.exe

Try run these two in command prompt.

bcdedit /deletevalue removememory
bcdedit /deletevalue truncatememory

then reboot.

You misspell truncate. 

 

Can you run bcdedit and take screenshot of the whole thing?

Check your spelling and spacing, you used Truncatmemory not Truncatememory.
