If you are running a single node and you have not changed the hdfs
configuration for repliaction then he default is set to 3 and you will just
have one available.
As long as this is not a production environment you can force namenode to
leave safe mode. Only issue in this will be in case any of the primary
blocks missing out from hdfs but that will only realised when you run fsck.
It should tell you that missing blocks and under replicated blocks
