My OS is Win 8.1 and at this very moment I am completely unable to start my PC normally. Attempting to do so, I don't even reach the password login screen. As such, the first part of the instructions in the tutorial "How to start Windows 8 in Safe Mode" are useless to me.

Tutorial Link -
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/start-windows-8-in-safe-mode/

HOWEVER, Windows 8.1 does provide (at least in my case) another method for reaching the Choose An Option screen shown in the tutorial...

Immediately after powering up my PC a message appears in the bottom left corner of my screen saying "Press Esc for the Startup Menu". When I press the Esc key, a menu appears with several options including to press F11 for System Recovery. On pressing the F11 key, the Choose An Option screen (shown in the tutorial above) appears and I just follow all other steps outlined in the tutorial.

If you didn't get the answer you wanted to hear,

you were probably asking the wrong question.

@kaljukass - When I click your link I get a "Problem Loading Page" Error. Is the URL correct?
