XP Safe mode

  wotbus@ 20:52 10 Oct 2006

I want to boot my XP system into safe mode, to try to resolve a problem with it refusing to boot past the desktop wallpaper.
When I hit F8 during bootup I get the boot menu but there is no SafeMode to select? What am I missing?

F8 should be repeatedly pressed during boot.

Like I said, I just get the Boot Menu with Select a First Boot Device. There is nowhere to select Safe Mode?

Ahhhh got it. Selected my drive then continued to tap F8. Off we jolly well go, cheers.

It has been said many times before I know, but once again won't go amiss.
This is a brilliant site for getting help and I want to thank everyone who do just that - help.
Thanks everyone.
