WinXP/SP3 boot selection menu disappears behind BootItBM boo

Postby gigasquid » Mon Jul 15, 2013 5:44 pm

Hi all,
I've modified my XP Home boot.ini file to give me the option of booting into SAFE mode when needed.

When rebooting the PC, the normal DOS boot loader screen only appears for a split second before being replaced by BootItBM's own boot menu.

My DOS boot loader is set with a delay of 30 secs. Any way to delay BootItBM's screen?

Thanks.

BIBM boots first. The XP loader and boot.ini aren't used until after that item is booted from the BIBM menu.

You can add a menu item to BIBM that is the same as XP's entry with the addition of an F8 key press. This will bring up the Safe Mode menu when booted.

Hello,

Set a time out in settings.

If you want to boot to safe mode, create a new boot item and use the
keystrokes feature of the boot item to press the arrow key and enter for
you.
