How to Boot in Safe Mode in Windows 8

Safe Mode Boot

Safe mode has saved us alot of times be it because of hardware malfunctioning or some other technicalities.  But due to some reason Windows 8 doesn't have it enabled by default, if you  want to enable it, here's how.

From the Home screen just type “CMD” and Right click on it then on the bottom of the screen you’ll see advance click on it and click on “Run as administrator
  • Then type "bcdedit /enum /v"
  • Now you’ll see two descriptions, look under “Windows Boot Loader” and copy the Identifier entry.
  • Now type "bcdedit /copy {72b4a7cd-e189-11e0-af56-eb8118bcf02b} /d “Windows 8 (Safe Mode)”"
  • Replace the GUID with the one you copied.
  • Now from the same command prompt type in “MSCONFIG”. Then go to the Boot Tab and check on the box where it says “Make all boot settings permanent” click on Apply and click OK.
  • Reboot your System you now when you press F8. Click on “Use another operating system” then select Safe Mode then you system will restart and login to Safe Mode.
