    When I press F8 during boot to open in safe mode, I just get a list of all the drives on my computer. Safe mode is not an option. How do I get to Safe Mode? Thanks. esmo

    Per the MSKB:

    To use a Safe Boot option, follow these steps:
    1. Restart your computer and start pressing the F8 key on your keyboard. On a computer that is configured for booting to multiple operating systems, you can press the F8 key when you see the Boot Menu.
    2. When the Windows Advanced Options menu appears, select an option, and then press ENTER.
    3. When the Boot menu appears again, and the words "Safe Mode" appear in blue at the bottom, select the installation that you want to start, and then press ENTER.
