I found the system was still under a maintenance plan, it was returned to the service center. Thanks for the help.

I tried several times to 'F8' was unable to break, might not have been quick enough! How much time is there to F8?

You don't have alot of time to enter F8 I would start pressing it as it looks like your BIOS are almost completed then do it at 1/2 second intervals.
