Adding SafeBoot to the Boot Menu

You can add Safeboot as an option to the normal XP boot screen
    1. Open a command prompt
    2. Copy the current c:\boot.ini to another name (just in case)
    3. With your favorite text editor, edit c:\boot.ini
    4. Copy then edit the current boot line to another line. For example:
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect
    might copy and then change to:
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional Safeboot" /fastdetect
    5. Start MSCONFIG
    6. Click on the BOOT.INI tab
    7. Highlight the second line with the additional name of Safeboot
    8. Check the /SAFEBOOT box with option you want
    Minimal - Minimal set of drivers
    Network - With Network Support
    Dsrepair - Directory Services Repair
    Minimal (Alternate Shell) - Standard Explorer Desktop
    9. You will now have this option every time you start XP
