Boot Windows 8 or 8.1 into safe mode (recovery mode) from external ISO image

Stanislav KhromovStanislav Khromov

If you tried booting Windows 8 or 8.1 into safe mode using F8 or Shft+F8, you may realize it no longer works properly.

If you boot from a Windows 8 ISO, it also does not provide you with this option. Very frustrating.

Here is the solution:

Now enter the following commands:

C:
cd C:\Windows\system32 
Bcdedit /set {bootmgr} displaybootmenu yes

What this will do is pop up the list of installed operating systems on your next reboot. Simply press F8 at the prompt and you can select safe mode from the list by pressing F4!
