Winxp Safe Mode From Cmd For Marty

Recommended Posts

Problem accessing WinXP Safe Mode.

From the Start menu's Run dialog, enter the command MSConfig. Click on the BOOT.INI tab and check the /SAFEBOOT box. Now when you boot, Windows will go into Safe mode. Naturally, when you no longer need Safe mode, you'll repeat the process and uncheck that box. One caveat: Don't experiment with the other settings on this tab. You could wind up unable to get back into MSConfig to undo your changes.

If you want it so that the option is valid from the F8 menu then you will have to performa repair on the XP installation. You can do this from the recovery console, see:

Try to use the boot CD, Recovery console...

Try to run fixboot util.

it dosent say what it does to your head.

my mum and dad used to drink.and it sort of put me off the stuff.

tho remember i when i was 21 i got what they called a bit tipsy.

and the only improvement i got was my libido.

so for that score alone.hahaha
