Hi. Since a few days ago, computer can't boot in Safe Mode. When asked, screen goes black and system start list below: multi(0)disk(o)partition(1)\windows\system32\drivers\ (whatever) AND goes repeating that listing differents drivers. Then after a while, goes back again to chooser screen. Only boot in Start Windows Normaly. I have a Grub boot chooser because i run linux as well along with XP Pro SP2. Never had problems. Need to boot in Safe Mode. Someone's got a solution? Thanks. David.

What's the last driver it shows on the list? does it just reboot after the last driver?Have you been able to boot in safe mode with Linux on there before??

Hi. The last driver on the list is btkrnl.sys. It seems to be a bluetooth driver. Efectively, i installed bluetooth last week. I can boot in Linux yes and i could boot in Safe Mode before with the Linux installed. This morning, I could boot in Safe Mode and without removing the bluetooth driver!!!???? In Normal Mode, i checked all the booting options (Msconfig, boot.ini), put 20 sec in the timeout instead of 5 sec and it seems to work. How can it be possible that in Safe Mode, the bluetooth driver try to charge itself?

Well, I'm not sure, as long as all is fine there should be no problem, as the saying goes: If it works, Why fix it?

If you can boot into safemode great, if it starts happening again post back.
