Windows 8 thoughts after a day at BUILD 2011

In this post, my fellow friend, colleague, C# Disciple and MVP Marlon Grech gives a good overview of his impressions of Windows 8 and how it will affect the future of computing.

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’
