Hi Experts,

I have Dell computer, but when I hit F8 startup I only get safe mode and start windows normally, but I remember that there was a especial sequence to get this menu mode advanced to include Windows Diagnostic and Last known good configuration.

Thank you

You might not be hitting F8 soon enough. F8 is the correct key to press.

Here is a video that shows you.. but as soon as the BIOS screen comes up.. just keep tapping F8.. I have also seen where when the options do come up hit F8 again to show more.

Have you had an error? the advanced startup options screen, which includes last known good...  should come up after windows encountered a problem

From the image above I only get the three safe modes, but no last known good configuration.
