Booting lewat Safe Mode di Windows 8

Posting pertama di tahun 2013 ini adalah mengenai bagaimana cara booting lewat Safe Mode di Windows 8.

Sangat aneh ketika pertama kali menggunakan windows 8 di netbook acer yg saya punya. awalnya cuman ingin coba-coba saja. tapi justru ketagihan. perasaan aneh selanjutnya adalah ketika ada aplikasi yang sering saya gunakan dan mengharuskan menginstall itu lewat safe mode.

saya pun mencoba cara seperti biasanya untuk masuk ke safe mode, yaitu ketika netbook saya nyalakan kemudian tekan tombol F8 atau Shift + F8. Tetapi justru tidak berhasil. ternyata Windows 8 punya cara tersendiri untuk bisa booting lewat Safe Mode.

upaya berikutnya adalah browsing via search engine google. dan dapatlah langkah-langkah untuk bisa booting lewat safe mode di windows 8. dibawah ini adalah langkah-langkahnya yang saya kutip dari www.redmondpie.com.

Booting Into Safe Mode When Windows Is Running Normally

In this case, all you need to do is make some changes through the MSConfig utility, and the next boot will get the PC up and running in Safe Mode.

Step 1: Press Win+R to get the Run dialog. Type “msconfig” (without the quotes) and launch the utility.

Step 2: In the Boot tab, check Safe boot, followed by the type of Safe Mode that you want to achieve. Hit Apply


That’s it – when you reboot your machine afterwards, it will start up in Safe Mode.

A noteworthy mention at this point is the fact that with this setting, the system will ALWAYS boot up in Safe Mode. If you want to get back to the normal operation, just launch msconfig again, and uncheck the Safe boot option. The next (and subsequent) restarts will get you back to normal Windows 8 environment.

Booting Windows 8 In Safe Mode When PC Is Not Starting

This one is a little tricky, because it takes trial and error (and patience) to launch the Windows 8 ‘recovery mode’ when start up sequence is on going. What you need to do is, past the BIOS splash screen, hold down the Shift key and repeatedly hit the F8 key. Doing so should get you to the recovery mode, but it might take a few tries before you achieve that.

Once the Recovery screen is displayed, click the See advanced repair options button. In the next screen, hit the Troubleshoot button.

Safe Mode 1

In the troubleshoot menu, click Advanced options, wherein lies Windows Startup Settings. Choose that.

Safe Mode 2

The next screen will ask you to restart your PC, after which you’ll see the familiar Advanced Boot Option screen – the same one that’s been around since Windows XP – and you can choose Safe Mode here.

It’s really not clear as to why Microsoft would bury something as useful as Safe Mode so deep and complicated within various screens, but it definitely isn’t convenient, to say the least. Nevertheless, it does exist, and you can definitely achieve it if you know where to look.
