Accessing Win XP safe mode on a MESH computer

Hi,

Anyone know how to access safe mode on a MESH computer running Win XP SP2? If I press F8 after the first beep on boot up it takes me to a disk boot menu. In other words, the F8 key seems to have a different purpose to that intended by MS.

Thanks, Roger

To get into safe mode you need to tap on the F8 key after the 'press F10 for recovery' disappears.
