If you start Windows 8 with Windows 7 dual, entering Safe Mode with Shift + F8 is a bit difficult. You must run Run msconfig.exe, enable the Safe Boot option, then restart to get a safe boot with both your boot options.
But you don’t have to. The Safe Mode option is already available in several other options. Let’s see where he is!
If you boot your dual boot system with Windows 8 CP by default, you will see this selection screen. As you can see, all these boot options are displayed graphically in Windows 8 –
Click Change Defaults or select’More Options’ to see more options.
Click on’Select other options’ to display this screen.
Then click’Troubleshooting’ to get this screen.
Now click on’Advanced Options’ to display this screen with the Windows boot settings and the’Restart’ button. Among other options, you also have the option’Enable Safe Mode’.
Click the’Restart’ button (as indicated by the red arrow in the image above) to restart and get various options, including different Safe Mode modes.
You can now select – Safe mode or Safe mode with network or Safe mode with command prompt. If you use any of these options in Safe Mode, the Windows 8 operating system will boot in Safe Mode.
This way, you can see that although the Safe Mode option is hidden deep inside, it is easily accessible in dual boot systems without changing msconfig.exe.
You can also activate the F8 key in Windows 8 and start in safe mode.
