When the bootloader displays the OS menu selection, select "Windows" and then press enter. And immediately after, Press F8.

And not once - oh no! Press F8 and keep pressing F8 as if your life was depending on it. At that point in time, the only goal in your life should be to press the button F8. It should be almost as if you were sent to this earth with the sole purpose of pressing F8 again and again and again until you get a Windows "Repair and / or Emergency Menu".

If you don't succeed the first time, try, try again.

Repeat.

// You can't boot into "Safe Mode" in XP after you've booted Linux! Remember kids - only one OS can be booted on a PC at one time. Unless, of course we're talking about virtualization and such, which is an entirely different ballgame.
