Pressing F8 during bootup doesn't get me to to Advanced Boot Options.

    Title says it all... I press F8 like a madman, hold it, press it, alternate or do just one... nothing happens and I go straight to my login screen. :confused:

    Things like going to BIOS work.

    Yes! Just now I tried it again and I pressed F8 like my life depended on it. Still didn't work.

    Try F5 to bring up the OS menu, then F8 once when you get the OS list for Advanced Options.
