    Post Disabling safe mode in Windows ME?

    Whats the method to disable safe mode in Windows ME? I looked in msconfig but I didn't see an option to disable safe mode.

    There is a piece of software I think it is called Xsetup that is similar to TweakUI only about 50 times as many options.

    http://www.xteq.com is the site but I got it from download.com (I think)

    I have used the XSetup software before and there isn't an option to disable safe mode, only an option to disable scandisk.

    errr these are msdos.sys settings

    check out the webpage
    http://www.physiol.ox.ac.uk/~trp/msdossys.html
    look at the info on bootwarn, BootMenuDefault, and maybe BootSafe also (info from the url included below)

    I would test these out to see if I could figure out what you need from it but I am at work and only have my win2k machine to work with so I cant do that right now.

    BootWarn=

    Default: 1

    Purpose: A setting of 0 disables the safe mode boot warning message and
    the Startup menu.

    BootMenuDefault=

    Default: 1 if the system is running correctly
    3 if the system hung in the previous instance

    Purpose: Use this setting to set the default menu item for startup.

    BootSafe=

    Default: 0

    Purpose: A setting of 1 forces your computer to boot in safe mode.
