F8 boot function not working - 09-06-2011, 02:56 PM
Inspiron mini 1018 , windows 7
F8 during boot, doesn't work
Regarding here : Windows 7 PC Restore | Dell I tried to hit F8 as written, but no response,just continue to boot. I redid this repeatedly ,but in vain.
After a while of purchase, I decided to install linux Joli OS cloud.I resized C and created 15GB partition to install it. afterwards, when uninstalling, it rendered the windows patition not able to boot and wants to enter win DVD.
Strangely for me, I would use boot manager to boot the first partition to load repair wizard, and 2nd (recovery partition) to load windows. The 3rd partition will give a boot BCD error.
I have already made a recovery image use Dell recovery software to 8GB flash drive, but 2 weeks after the purchase.
What would u suggest me to do?
