Safe Mode Problem

I needed to restart with safe mode so I put it on /SAFEBOOT in the boot.ini tab (msconfig), it restarted but it says the password is wrong. I have a feeling it's got something to do with the domain (but i cannot change those settings). I also tried to "start normally" but it just continues on safe mode. Is there anyway i can change the boot.ini from the dos or bios so I can get it back to normal?
Thanks in advance.

Hey there axytrix.

When you come to the user select screen, there should be two profiles... Your profile (axytrix) and Administrators Profile. Try and select your profile since the is no password or if there is you should know it. If you can't try Admin profile. Once you have entered any of the profiles, just erase the line "/SAFEBOOT" in the boot.ini.

In future you don't have to put "/SAFEBOOT" in the boot.ini to go into safemode, next time just press "F8"

Let me know if it worked.

Cool :whistling:
