Keep pressing it after your bios screen, then you should get a menu to choose safe mode from.

Boot the Windows 7 DVD, then after the language choice, choose “Repair my installation” in the bottom left corner the button.


Choose “Startup Repair”. This procedure will rewrite your boot sector and will replace the boot files.


If this doesn’t work, try to boot again but this time choose “Open command prompt” from the above menu then write Bootrec /RebuildBcd command

Have you checked in your bios to see if your optical drive is listed before your HDD in the boot order?

Since I do not know what a TPM is, I have to ask if it is a Trusted Platform Module. If it is, would that be used in connection with an OEM install like a Dell?

If not, is it something that can be turned off in the Bios?

Try looking in the bios for a TPM option that you can turn it off
