  2. Those are options that you see during POST (Power On Self Test) and have
    nothing to do with Windows, and are part of the BIOS. The F8 for Advanced
    Startup Options comes into play moments afterwards, when Windows starts to
    load. Just keep on hitting F8 and you will get there.

  3. Nope, it won't show up. Just tap the F8 key before Windows starts up and
    you should be all set. It may take several taps until you learn when to do
    it - each computer is just a little different on timing.
