Can't Access Safe Mode When Booting

  tankerman 09:08 13 Apr 05

Got a problem trying to access safe mode ..... when I hit F8 as the PC boots there is no WINDOWS ADVANCED OPTIONS MENU instead I get a BOOT MENU prompting selection of a BOOT FIRST DEVICE. Irrespective of the selection made the PC will then continue to boot into Win XP (Home Edition / SP2).

PC will boot into safe mode when run from configuration utility. Any ideas how I can get to WINDOWS ADVANCED OPTIONS MENU during boot?

Thanks Yoda Knight ..... lo and behold there is the ADVANCED OPTIONS MENU! It was one of the few occasions that I hadn't tried pressing F8!
