Unable to get to safe mode. after pressing f8 during start up, there isn't a safe mode option?
I only get 4 options to choose from:
SM-AOPEN COM 4824/AAH
1ST FLOPPY DRIVE
I had the same problem.
Checked BIOS and noticed the time was wrong.
I reset it and rebooted.
Checked BIOS again, time was wrong again.
Replaced CMOS battery and haven't had the problem since.
