F8 brings up my motherboards boot options. I always seem to end up in the wrong menu. If I want safe mode I end up at the bios boot options menu and if I want to boot from a USB drive I end up at the windows safe mode, etc menu.
Maybe I'll have better luck with the space bar, thanks for the heads up.
