Default Vista 'Safe Mode' boot menu

I'm working on a laptop with Vista Home Premium, and at every boot up, it goes to the 'Safe Mode' menu... you know the one with 3 or 4 different safe mode options and one more for normal mode. This comes up EVERY time. I know Vista doesn't have a boot.ini like XP has; if it did, it would be a simple edit of removing a boot 'switch' like /sos or whatever. What would be the Vista equivalent?

It's called bootmgr and BCD.
