How do I boot my Windows 7 partition to safe mode if it is installed into BOOTCAMP? On normal PC computers, you normally see the BIOS getting started and prompting you to press something (normally F8) to enter different boot up methods. However, on the Mac's Bootcamp, there's no text that says any info about such. It directly goes to the Windows 7 loading screen.
Not sure if this is Windows 8 only, but this worked for me:
- Open the
Startmenu, click the
Powerbutton, then hold
- After a few seconds, a full-screen menu appears
- The computer will now reboot. Hold Alt to make sure the Bootcamp menu appears, then select
Note that the
X: appears to be mapped to a 'clean' Windows install in the command prompt.
