Windows 8 Developer Preview Safe Mode


It turns out that the normal way to access safe mode is disabled in Windows 8 Developer Preview.

Instead, launch Windows, and do the following:

  1. Call up the ‘Run Dialog‘ by hitting WinKey+R
  2. Enter ‘msconfig‘ and hit enter
  3. Go to the ‘Boot’ tab
  4. Enable ‘Safe Boot‘ under ‘Boot Options’
  5. Restart your machine
To return to normal mode, just run the same process, and un-check ‘Safe Boot’
