With respect, your not being very clear on what your problem is.
But first, you can't Delete Safe Mode. It is inherent in the operating system and for good reason. It is the mode Windows boots into if you have problems, and an area that can be used to fix a non-normal boot situation.
Now what are you saying? You have tried to load ME and it's booting into Safe mode" or you can only boot '98 into Safe Mode?
