WTF!? Can't do safe mode!?

Discussion in 'Tech Talk' started by Branded Wolf, Jul 18, 2008.

  1. Ok so long story short, I was trying to restart my system to boot up into safe mode so I could try installing medal of honor airborne, since it's being a bish to install.
    I'm hitting f8, the menu pops up.. but there's no safe mode? Or I'm an idjit.. not sure atm :p The only choices I have are my cd drive, dvd drive, hard drive and floppy... but no safe mode choice? I coulda swore it should be here.
    Any suggestions or thoughts?
    Running Win XP.

    Push enter on your hard drive, then spam F8. You have a boot screen loading first.

    Well branded, at least you will prevent other idiots from having this problem in the future! I'm sure a few of the lurkers here didn't know or will run into this exact problem.
