VMware Server 2: How to press F8 at boot to get in to windows safe mode?
Posted on 2008-10-01
In doing a test restore of a system in VMware, i need to be able to boot in to Safe mode.
The problem is that the VMware remote console apparently doesn't display the bootup screen which would allow me to press F8 to boot in to safe mode.
The first thing in the VMware remote console i see after doing a reset is the windows server 2003 splash screen, at that point it's too late to press F8.
Anyone know you can boot in to safe mode in Vmware server 2?
