Boot in safe mode in XP in dual boot configuration with Vista

#1
Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum.

I have had a dual boot configuration with Vista and XP for some time and I love it.

Unfortunately, I loaded a driver in XP that causes the blue screen of death as soon as XP loads. I have been trying to figure out how to get into XP in safe mode, but nothing seems to work. Booting in Vista is fine and I can get into safe mode in Vista by hitting F8.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Paul

Hi Paul, welcome to NST.

Just select XP from the boot menu, then immediately start bashing the F8 key *after* you press enter.
