    Failure configuring Windows features, can't go SAFE MODE

    Dear users, I'm stuck in an endless process of reverting changes after a failure to configure windows uupdates and I can't use the F8 key to enter the safe mode, because I haven't re-enabled the F8 key while the system was running smoothly. How do I grasp this problem?

    P.S. I left the PC running for 10 hours, which changed nothing.
