I have a Dell Vostro 420 with the Windows XP Pro Downgrade option. When it boots up, I have XP Pro.

When I boot the computer and press F8 I get a screen that says

Windows Boot Manager
Choose an operating system to start or press Tab to select a tool

Operating System
Windows Vista

Windows Memory Diagnostic

OK so how do I get to Safe Mode?

Press F8 again (hold F8 down), after you select the OS?
