Safe mode when os missing


Safe mode is booting the computer without the drivers. It works with the OS. Not present when no OS is installed. You must go to the bios setup and ensure usb is in the bootup chain. Hd1, DVD, USB.

Try going into os options mode by pressing power button on and escape repeatedly until OS options of normal or emergency! repair mode select one of them. Sudden power shut down doesn't let the desktop save the restart information properly.
