Great guide zebadee... .
A comment though, I've been flashing my DVDRW's more than 1000 times in the past 2Â½ years and never needed to boot into safe mode.
zebadee, your way to boot into safe mode (if needed at all) is also kinda complicated, why not just restart, hit F8 key at bootup, and boot directly into safe mode without the need to run msconfig twice, risking boot/system failures.
Let's hope some of zebadee's work can become a part of the upcoming (revised) FAQ. If not, just make it sticky. :iagree:
