XP/Vista dual boot... no safe mode in XP?


New Member
Is there a way to add safe mode options to XP in the Vista bootloader? As it stands, only Vista's safe mode options are accessible.

Wraithdigger, you'll need to add the safemode flag to the XP entry in C:\boot.ini

To access XP's safe mode options, select the entry to boot XP from Vista's bootloader and immediately press F8.
