I was wondering if a setting can be enable to disallow the F8. Windows has not booted at this point, I think we're pretty much running in BIOS. I was t-shooting a friend's PC (a system restore to a prior restore point solved the issue), and at cold boot if I pressed F8 I would get to a stalled black screen indicting I could press F1 to boot, but there was no way to get a safe mode boot. Thoughts?
I was able to put the PC into safe mode by logging in normally, then through msconfig setting a safe mode boot, but the F8 should usually be the trick at a full boot. Hmmmmmm.
