Booting in Windows Safe Mode


Hi there,

When a computer powered on and starts, it executes an application in its ROM, This is called Boot Program and usually you will see that lots of system messages before Operating System is loading.

Now a day this whole process from power on until ready to use is called Boot Process.

You will no need to know much about Boot. You can boot your Computer via CD by following steps.

  • Insert Bootable CD into your CD / DVD drive.
  • Restart your computer.
  • The black screen that 1st appear. It will say something like “Press DEL or F2 to enter setup, or TAB / F12 to change boot order.
  • On the next screen that appears list of devices. You should choose the CD / DVD drive by arrow keys.
  • Proceed with your Operating system or system recovery.

When you boot your computer you will have to back up your data first. It is easy to make a mistake in setting up the partition and accidentally format your drive- erasing all of your data

Booting in Windows Safe Mode


In computer terminology, booting is the process that a computer performs after it has been plugged in to an electrical outlet and pressed on the CPU’s power button. All the processes that a computer undergoes from the time the CPU has been started and up to the time when the operating system has finished loading all necessary programs, all of these activities compose booting.

You cannot define booting pointing only to one particular task. It is composed of many different tasks that are automatically done by the computer. Among the tasks included in booting are:

POST or Power-on Self-Test – this is the very first thing a computer does right after you press on the power button of the CPU. This test verifies and initializes all chips in the motherboard, the memory card, video card, network adapter, sound card, optical drive, hard drive, monitor, power supply, processor, all cooling fans, keyboard, mouse, and all devices attached to the CPU.

Loading of the operating system – once the POST is finished and no error was detected, the actual loading of the operating system begins. This is when Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, or Linux starts to boot. In this process, the drivers of all installed devices will be initialized and started. It loads and starts the program that handles the keyboard, mouse, monitor, motherboard chipset, hard drive, optical drive, network adapter, video card, and more.

It also loads and starts the programs that are set to run along with the operating system. These are the programs included in the Startup group. The operating system also starts and stops different services for different functions and also adds stability.
