Windows 7: Boot into Safe Mode When You Have 2 Partitions (Windows XP & Windows 7

Boot into Safe Mode When You Have 2 Partitions (Windows XP & Windows 7

Hi everyone,

I have a quick question. I have 3 partitions on my hard drive. First partition is for Windows XP and the second is Windows 7 and the third is for data.

My question is how does having 2 partitions impact booting into safe mode? I assume that both XP and W7 have their own safe mode?

I am asking because I need to get into windows 7 safe mode in order to install a piece of software.

You're right they have their own safe mode and it does not affect each other when you have done something on a safe mode

Highlight the OS on Boot Menu then immediately begin tapping the F8 key.
