Who was the genius at Microsoft that decided it would be a good idea to disable safe mode?

I went and installed Outpost Seurity Suite to see if it would work. It detected a system file as a trojan and the system would BSOD about 10 seconds after booting up, with no way to enter safe mode to disable it from loading.

I have run a repair of Windows 8 and now I am trying to follow these instructions to enable safe mode but I keep getting this error.

bcdedit /enum /v
The boot configuration data store could not be opened. Access is denied.

Edit...I had to browse the System32 directory and right click cmd.exe and run it as administrator to get this command to work. Now we can be booted into safe mode.

Has anyone tried the latest 11.10 ATI drivers with win 8? I got some very bad crashes with them installed.

Like I wrote in my review (see link in my sig to the post in this thread), I also tried installing Catalyst but it didn't go well. Just stay with the Engineering Sample drivers AMD provided Microsoft which are installed automatically or try installing some modified drivers, I think you can find them on the guru3d site.

Welcome to the club! Just disable the Metro UI and you'll like it! It's a faster version of Windows 7.

I bought the December issue of PC Pro (UK), the cover story is Windows 8, so if anybody is interested, there you go.

They cover many aspects of the OS, but when it comes to the desktop, this is what they have to say:

Quote:
On the whole, the desktop side of Windows 8 has been improved, even if most of the main changes are in the background and under the hood. That alone, though, would only warrant a service pack at best - it's the Metro revamp that dominates, and it's here that traditional systems see less of a benefit.
Changing things for a better way of working is one thing, doing so because Microsoft wants to sell more tablets is another entirely, and we just can't see Microsoft releasing Windows 8 without the option to default to the old desktop.
Where have I heard this before ?


They also have this very conclusive subtitle to one of the screenshots (featuring the fullscreen wheather app):

Quote:
Metro apps work well on a tablet, but is a full-screen app ever usable on a monitor ?
And I would add - with 22", 23" and 24" monitors coming down in price, space is not at a premium anymore - what a stupid way to occupy the screen with somehing that reminds me of Media Portal's fullscreen wheather function it would be - in Media Portal's case it actually makes sense because it's a Media Center software designed for the living room.

I think we can all agree that unless Microsoft brings back the Start Menu to the desktop version of Windows 8, this will be another Windows ME that most people will jump over whenever they can.

I agree with tpi2007, it seems like a lot of unnecessary fluff just to keep developers busy. Especially when Windows 7 works so well (finally!). I think they have revolving OS teams, one does 95, XP and 7 but the other did Windows ME and Vista.

I see your pattern which has me thinking what alot of people have been saying.

95/xp/7 good

98/me/vista/ 8? bad...

Which means one thing its either going to flop like vista and only people who get it in oem with their computers are going to use it or Microsoft will build windows 9 or what ever quickly and it will be even better than 7

I would like so say off topic I have gone through this thread and found all the useful links you guys might find handy if you are running windows 8 or want to give it a shot if you find any more info that hasn't been mentioned feel free to post it
