F8 Goes into Boot Device Priority instead of Safe Mode

F8 Goes into Boot Device Priority instead of Safe Mode

Anyone have a solution for this? I have XP Pro on my system and have
been trying to get into 'Safe Mode' from POST. As soon as the first
BIOS screen appears, I hit F8 and instead of getting me into the
options that include Boot into Safe Mode, I get the option for Boot
Device Priority. Is there a way to disable this feature and get into
the option where I can choose the Safe Mode boot up? Is there a
special combination of keys I'm supposed to hit instead of just F8 to
avoid the Boot Device option?

Thanks a bunch.

Try F5 instead - that should take you into the right area.
