There are several things that happen when starting Windows in safe mode and are different from a standard boot:
Safe mode does not execute autoexec.bat or config.sys files.
Most device drivers are not loaded. A device driver is the software that Windows uses to communicate with a hardware item, such as a printer or scanner.
Instead of the normal graphics card driver, the Safe Mode uses the standard VGA graphics mode. This mode is supported by all Windows compatible graphics cards.
Himem.sys, which is normally loaded in the config.sys script, is loaded with the /testmem:on switch. This switch instructs the computer to test the extended memory before it can continue.
Safe mode checks the msdos.sys file to find out where to find the rest of the Windows files. When it finds the files, it loads Windows in safe mode with the command win /d:m. If it cannot find the Windows files, it will run command.com to open a C: prompt.
Windows starts with a batch file named system.cb instead of the default file system.ini. This file loads the virtual device drivers (VxDs) that Windows uses to communicate with standard parts of the computer.
Windows now loads the regular system.ini file and the win.ini and registry settings. It ignores the[Boot] sections (except shell and device lines) and[386Enh] of the system.ini file and does not load or execute any programs listed in win.ini.
The Windows desktop is loaded in 16 colors and a resolution of 640 x 480 with the words “Safe Mode” in each corner.
