Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
Thank you for using FixYa for your problem
The reason you cant get past the restart is because by selecting safeboot on the boot.ini tab, you have now set your computer to boot straight into safe mode (even though you knew your computer couldnt boot to safe mode) :)
Were you having trouble before? Why were you trying to get into safe mode in the first place? it may help with the solution. Were you getting shutdowns or blue screens? Ram problems can cause all sorts of issues.
Do you have your windows cd? If you do then follow the instructions on the link below to replace your boot.ini. file
Let me know how you get on with that and we will go from there :) (just edit your original post with added detail)

1. Boot the computer in Safe mode( To Boot in safe mode you need to keep hitting the f8 keys while the computer Restart and you will prompt a screen which reads as Advanced boot Menu . in the windows please select safe mode with network ). An then try to login . and open misconfig and disable all the thrid party services and Restart the computer .
If you still have the problem boot the computer using vista Dvd . And select the option to startup repair option . That will fix the problem
