Client's HP 2000 Laptop, Windows 8.1; it has a virus and won't proceed past startup. I need to use Safe Mode, per directions here: http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials/4924-advanced-startup-settings-boot-windows-8-a.html

However, the "Windows Startup Options" screen does not show; everything else does. Help!?!

"it has a virus and won't proceed past startup" - please describe how far exactly it gets.
Do you have a setup DVD? Use option 7 from http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials/4935-startup-options-menu-boot-windows-8-a.html
