    Safe mode with networking a startup option

    When I boot or reboot, I would like to have "Safe Mode With Networking" as one of the options in addition to the usual Switch User, Log Off, Lock, Restart, Shutdown, Hibernate, etc. Does anyone know how to accomplish this please?

    I use EastBCD to create a new start-up entry - EasyBCD has options to set such a start-up but it doesn't seem to work, so after setting up this option in EasyBCD I then use MSCONFIG to change the entry so it actually starts in Safe Mode with Networking.

    Hope this helps. If you can't work out the detail yourself and need more detailed instructions please ask and next time I visit the Lounge I will give more detail.

    Safe mode with networking a startup option

    Hi Paul
    Thanks for your prompt response. I have downloaded EasyBCD as you recommended but frankly don't know how to use it to give me the option of choosing "Safe mode with networking" at boot time so would appreciate your help. I don't want this to be the default boot option just one of them (to save having to hold the F8 key down).
    Regards
    Barry
