Hi
My F8 is not working to get to safe mode or to the advance tools does Windows 8 have this option ?
Windows 8 Pro Media Center 64 bit upgrade on my Dell XPS 430 Desktop PC with SSD drive .
It has just one partition I have reinstalled to have the service partition also and it does not work .
I am at a loss as to why it does not work , but F8 does work for Vista and Windows 7 on my XPS 430 .
I am not dual booting with any of these drives I boot with the bios to get to the drive I use .
If you need any other info just ask OK !
Thanks for your help on this !

Jerry W.
