Re: Recovery, but F11 fails

Have you added any partitions to your drive?, If so your Master Boot Record that is on track 0 has changed and you may have lost the option to boot to the service partition.
after the BIOS screen appears on a cold start (power on and not reboot) try pressing F11 a few times see if that works

Re: Recovery, but F11 fails

hecttor, welcome to the forum,
if as elvorian stated, something has changed, you can use this tool to repair the F11 function, a floppy drive is required. Please also refer to this thread.
