i'm seting up windows xp on my sisters laptop the only way i could restart was accessing the disk in safe mode. Now i'm trying to switch over to restart but it keeps opening in safe mode which I'm trying to get out of ????? Some help would be nice anybody.

The installation didn't happen cause it keeps opening in safe mode . It starts up like normal the windows logo appearing and instead of a log on screen it goes straight to safe mode which is seen on the bottom and top of the screen. With the same xp can't setup in safe mode window.
