    I have a question regarding drivers; I have a 64bit os, but when i booted into save mode i noticed that it loaded (32bit drivers )is this correct ? or maybe i didn't set the bios correct when i installed windows. thank you.
    i hope i'm in the correct place for this Q?.

    I'll take a guess that vista-x64 boots into a 32bit version of the OS when using safe mode for maximum stability. If by chance you mean installed 32bit drivers while in safe mode, rather then just loaded on boot up, then that probably is something to worry about.

    EDIT: more elaboration on what exactly you saw and did during safe mode would be nice.
    BTW I have never booted into safe mode once, so my guess is just a wild guess :x
