Hi -

the Driver Verifier instructions here https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/576333/driver-verifier-bsod-related-windows-10-81-8-7-vista/  state  "If you are unable to boot into normal Windows after VERIFIER_ENABLED BSOD - Boot into SAFEMODE - tap the F8 key repeatedly during boot-up, Select "System Restore", Choose the restore point that you created in step #1".

 

It is my understanding that hitting the F8 key doesn't work in Windows 10. Will the F8 key work in this case? If not, what procedure do you use?

 

I have a problem that is likely a driver issue but I don't want to run Driver Verifier without understanding the instructions.

 

Thanks

How to boot into Safe Mode in Windows 8.1

You will need to use an Administrator account to for this.

Press the Windows key windowskey_zps092d5c75.png and the X key together.  In the menu that opens select Search.  When the Search charm opens type in msconfig.

msconfig will appear below the search box, click/tap on it.

When System Configuration opens click/tap on the Boot tab.

Under Boot options click/tap on Safe boot, then click/tap on Apply, then OK.

The next time you start the computer it will boot into Safe Mode.

Please note.  You computer will continue to boot into Safe Mode when it is started until you go back to System Configuration and remove the check in Safe boot.
