Which is correct: "boot into safe mode" or "boot in to safe mode"

Just a grammar question. Into usually refers to physically moving an object inside of another object, so if I had to guess I'm thinking "Boot in to safe mode" but I'm not sure in this case.

In today's usage when you run your computer you are "running in Windows" or "running Windows" because a computer program is a compilation of code and you are somewhere in that code at any point of time. You would never say you are running "into" Windows or "in to" Windows. I would answer neither of your options. You simply boot in safe mode which is an alternate way of running the Windows operating system.
