What does error oxcoooo12f indicate?


There is an error in either an application or a damaged file. Try these;
Method 1:

Boot the computer in a Clean Boot state and check the status. A clean boot helps to verify if any third party application service or startup item is causing this issue.

Note: After you have finished troubleshooting, follow steps under "How to reset the computer to start as usual after troubleshooting with clean boot" in the article to boot to normal startup.

If issue persists, follow Method 2.
Method 2:
If issue persists, I would suggest you to perform SFC scan and check if that helps. The sfc/scannow command scans all protected system files and replaces incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions.

Are there any other methods on how to perform SAFEBOOT / SAFEMODE? I only know 2 methods which are from the F8 key on boot-up and from msconfig under the boot tab.. some say that there are still other...


There is ONE other method you can try, but do NOT make a habit of it, because you COULD damage your computer. That being said, I use this method when I have no other option.

You SHOULD be able to FORCE Windows to enter "SAFE MODE" by shutting the power off (or unplugging it) while the system is starting to load Windows. After you turn the power on, try booting the computer. The system should notice that the previous boot attempt failed, and the computer should automatically boot into Safe Mode.

If you are referring to the NTLDR issue, you can achieve the same by booting from the XP CD and entering the Recovery Console, as outlined in methods 2 and 3 :o)
