Hi. A friend has of mine a Dell Optiplex desktop and when he hits F8 to get to safe mode he said the only thing that comes up to pick from is the operating system which is Windows XP. This is the first time I've heard of that. In my experience when you hit F8 you get safe mode, safe mode with networking, etc. As I said these options do not appear, it's just the OS that apprears. I wonder what the deal is with that? Is there another way to access safe mode with networking that we are not aware of? Thank you!!!
