    Has anyone been able to figure out how to get into SafeMode in 8102, if you press F8 you are presented with a few options, such as changing your OS version, I have dual boot 7/8 . I cannot figure out how to get into safe mode as I need to install a program that will only install in safemode.

    Any suggestions ???

    Win + R (Run) ->> "msconfig".
    Boot tab > Safe boot.

    Ok, and reboot.

    To boot in normal mode:

    Win + R (Run) ->> "msconfig".
    General tab > Normal startup.

    Ok, and reboot.

    does anyone know what the custom option means?

    Windows Boot Loader
    -------------------
    identifier {current}
    device partition=C:
    path \Windows\system32\winload.exe
    description Windows Developer Preview
    locale en-US

    This should be fixed. Because if you can't boot, you also can't get into the safe mode.
