Booting Windows 8: Too Fast To Interrupt

Remember the days of people complaining about their computer booting too slow? Now, people are going to complain about it booting too fast. big grin

Windows 8 has a problem آ– it really can boot up too quickly. So quickly, in fact, that there is no longer time for anything to interrupt boot. When you turn on a Windows 8 PC, there’s no longer long enough to detect keystrokes like F2 or F8, much less time to read a message such as "Press F2 for Setup." For the first time in decades, you will no longer be able to interrupt boot and tell your PC to do anything different than what it was already expecting to do.
