Can I make a VM restart on safe mode?


I have a WS 2019 VM that keeps in black after booting. I'm not able to access it even through console. One of the fixes is going into safe mode and changing some drivers, but I can not get there cause of the black screen. My Question is that if there is any way that I can set "System Configuration" on the windows VM to restart on safe mode using a Kace Script. The VM is perfectly working, but all I can see is a black screen. That is why I am trying to use the Kace Agent.

One of the annoying things about Hyper-V is how long it takes the VM console to connect after you boot the VM.  As you can see, you connect way after the time expired to press F8 to get the boot menu.  You can try to delay the start of the boot from disk by either setting the NIC to network boot or putting in the Windows DVD that prompts you to "Press Any Key to boot from DVD".  This way your connected before you boot from the hard disk and you get some time to press F8 to get the OS boot menu.
