    Arch,

    It sounds like you are at step 5 now, and need to continue to make it for Safe Mode. Steps 1 to 4 only add it to the Windows Boot Manager, but steps 5 on makes it for Safe Mode.

    Hi All,

    Is there a option to check the "safe boot" options for the safe mode created, without going to msconfig ?

    Is there any command that sets the safe boot through command prompt ?



    Thanks,

    Hello Yashveer, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    You could use OPTION FIVE below to do so in the command prompt instead.

    Hi Brink,

    Thanks for your quick response, i went through the option 5.

    But i wanted to create a scenario where i have 2 entries:

    1-> Windows 8 ( debug enabled with 1394 or net or com)
    2-> Safemode

    I know how to create the first option,

    But if i use the 5th option pointed by you, than i am worried it will overwrite the first option leading to only 1 safe mode option entry.

    So is there a way to create the above scenario, without using the msconfig utility. Thank you.

    You could use Option 5 to do so, but you would need to make certain that you substitute identifier for the Safemode entry you created in this tutorial.

    The safest way of course would be to use msconfig instead.

    I made another post somewhere about how I can just press F-5 & boot to Safe Mode.

    I also use WinAero: Boot UI Tuner to get the startup options where Safe Mode & Safe Mode with Administrator CMD Prompt is available.

    I set my options time to 80 seconds so I have time to read the list.

    Just thought this might be of interest.

    How can one tell that it's in Safe Mode? Sure seems like a full blown OS to me. Doesn't it state on the desktop anymore? If it wasn't for the Boot tab in System Config I really wouldn't know.

    It should have "Safe Mode" in all 4 corners of the screen.
    Mine does.
