ExitWindowsEx can be used to shutdown (and reboot) but as for restarting in a 'safe' mode that I don't know how, or even if it is possible.

Well, the bad news is, it is not possible by "official" means (and I don't even know any hacks) - see http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa376881%28VS.85%29.aspx ("Shutting Down"), which documents all three ways to shut down Windows via an API.

I guess there might be a way to reboot with networking by setting some key, value in registry and using ExitWindowsEx () as already advised by AndyAinscow.

Just google the registry key...

you need to know file handling in c++. Just google it.

Also need to set the permission of the file that you want to modify.

You are aware that your advice is more than dangerous? You don NOT WANT to tamper with boot.ini in ANY WAY. Period. Chances are that the system will not boot at all if something goes wrong.

AndyAinscowCommented:
I'd agree with jkr - get it wrong and you have major problems.
If you do want that then at least make certain the disc is formatted with FAT32 (not NTFS) so you could at least boot to floppy / CD and use an editor to put a functional version of boot.ini into place.

You want to reboot YOUR pc in safe mode with networking you now say.

So follow the instructions:

At the command prompt (the little box you can enter a command in when you display the menu at the bottom left of the XP screen - might be called 'run' or similar) type in

    * msconfig then press enter - the config utility starts


    * Select the boot.ini tab - third or fourth tab, called boot.ini


    * click the checkbox for safe mode - about half way down


    * now click the radio for networking - to the right of the 'safemode' checkbox


    * reboot your system
