safe mode into which OS

i think in windows you press F5 before the system load

safe mode linux

in linux you find this at bootloader menu

safe mode windows
at your boot loader menu select window$ and subsequently press F5 (I should say its long time since i used windoes, so am not sure whether its F5 or F8 but its one of them)

viola
