I followed the instructions here but it did not seem to work. How do I boot to safe mode? I am on Mavericks 10.9.3.

  • Are you saying the Firmware password request did not come up?

  • No it did not. It just booted up normally i.e. as if I had not been holding down the Shift key. Is your experience different @Buscar웃?
