Linuxhelp _ General Discussion _ Booting from Grub.

Posted by: burgersplus Dec 21 2005, 04:27 PM

I have installed Fedora and Grub is set to Boot into Windows first, but I cannot seem to boot into Win98 Safe Mode by holding down the F8 key. Is there a solution to this as I like to use Safe Mode for defragging and repair solutions.

Your help is appreciated.

The best way is to set windows to boot into safe mode, I can't remember exactly how to do it, but I think its in msconfig. That way you don't have to deal with the timing of pressing F8.

Thanks Jim
You were right. Its in msconfig - select diagnostic startup.

Thanks again and problem solved.


Now how do you close the post.??
