    Hi Shawn,

    I would like to ask something:

    I'm a little bit confused. Why we use this tricky way (Option Two) instead of Msconfig?
    We can easily remove "Safe Mode" from boot loader with System Confguration Window (Msconfig)

    Yes, You do. How will You add one more entry in boot manager through System Configuration?
    There is no option for that. And that's why we have bcdedit.

    Hello Nonpasaran,

    Mostly because OPTION TWO is a universal method that can be done at boot or in Windows 8.

    Hi Shawn

    I just wanted to clarify that this tutorial still works in the Windows 8 RTM (9200) version.

    Thanks

    I have a dual boot Windows 8/Windows 7 setup.

    I use Windows 7 Boot Manager to control which one I boot to as I prefer it to the Windows 8 one, plus it was easier to setup. I originally had Win 7 installed on my SSD then installed Win 8 on a partition on a SATA II drive. After using it for a while and getting it setup the way I wanted, I basically swapped the two using Acronis image backup/restore, but left the System Reserved partition originally created when Win 7 was installed, thus the Win 7 boot manager.

    So, how do I add Safe Mode to Windows 8 in this case?

    Do I just do the same thing and then I will see the Windows 8 / Safe Mode choice after choosing Win 8 from the initial Boot selection screen?

    Edit: Never mind. I just went ahead and did it and it added it to the normal Boot Manager screen, so I now have:

    Windows 8 Pro X64
    Windows 7 Pro X64
    Windows 8 Pro X64 Safe Mode

    and all work.

    Thanks for another great tutorial Shawn.
