Insider Preview Safe mode

I don't know for sure, but maybe if it is that old it doesn't have the bios fastboot option??
You are right. Mine does not have fast boot in bios, at least I can't find it.

Are you aware of this tutorial ? It is applicable to Win 10.
Fast Startup - Turn On or Off in Windows 8

Do you think the followings in elevated command prompts will help ?
BCDEDIT /set {bootmgr} displaybootmenu yes
BCDEDIT /timeout 5

Thanks David, but that is not applicable. That is the fast boot function in Windows. My problem is, I think (?) with the bios fast boot.
The BCDEDIT command will, I believe, only change the time that the OS sits on the Boot menu. This, in any event, I do through the MSConfig.
Anyway, as I said, it is not too important, but I will certainly keep pursuing the problem. For the time being, I am continuing playing with a few other functions.

Is this method still working (for everyone or anyone who may have tried it) since upgrading to this latest build (9879)?
bcdedit /set {default} bootmenupolicy legacy
It just stopped working for me and I'm not at all sure why.
