Hi. Thanks for reading my post.
I am using Windows XP Professional (5.1, Build 2600), Service Pack 3.
I am trying to run some virus scanners in safe mode, but I am unable to boot in safe mode. I even followed the steps outlined in the guide posted here on Bleeping Computer. First, I tried using the System Configuration Utility, by typing in msconfig in Run. Strangely, there was no boot tab. I then reboot my computer, hit f8, but instead a screen comes up giving me the option of which drive I would like to boot first. I have three drives in total, two hard drives, and one dvd rom.
Maybe it has to do with the bios? My motherboard is an ASUS M3N78-VM, BIOS version: 08.00.14.
I hope the information I have provided is sufficient enough for you to assist me with my issue. If you require more information please do not hesitate to ask. Thank you for your time.
