How do I get to safe mode? Answered


Well, just realized something strange. I have a laptop which I dual-boot XP and Ubuntu on. When it starts up you get that select operating system screen. The question is... how do I boot XP in safe mode? It gives me the option for a recovery mode for Ubuntu, but no sign of a safe mode for XP.



. If you don't have a Safe Mode option at the select-OS menu, select XP and then start tapping the F8 key. (I _think_ it's F8, but too lazy to look it up, Google "WinXP Safe Mode" if F8 doesn't work.) Should bring up a menu with Safe Mode as an option.
