Need help with Safe Mode after freezing up

I could use any help I could get with this one, thanks in advance....

I'm freezing up on the gray screen with the apple and the spinning wheel. I've tried re-starting after removing my peripherals, no luck.


I think my problem might be this: I installed some new software recently and the machine might be trying to boot from the wrong volume (I left an image mounted by mistake, which is being read as a drive I think). So I'd like to get in and delete that software.

As a next step I'd like to try Safe Mode next but am having trouble doing it. Do I hit "-x" during startup, and if so at what point in the startup process?

Any help would be hugely appreciated. Thank you!!!
