    no.... I dont.
    It doesnt boot in safe mode, or in safe mode with networking or in safe mode with command prompt. It just goes back to the same screen

    I said BIOS, not safe mode. The BIOS is a completely different thing entirely.

    When you turn on your computer hit F2 when you see the Asus logo and then F2 again to enter BIOS.

    Can you check to see if you have the option to boot from USB? Or from your recovery partition, if you have one.

    Since you don't have access to another computer, trying to boot from USB won't work. So there's a way to access your recovery partition. I hope you have one....

    I don't want you to do a complete recovery as you'll lose everything. I need you to access the boot menu. So exit the BIOS and do a restart. During restart just press down on any key and the boot menu should appear, tell me what it says.

    my hard drive is partitioned, if that's what you mean. The boot menu showed the same screen as before.

    OK. Since I can't see what you have in front of you I need you to tell me what it says. I don't want you to do a full recovery otherwise you'll lose everything. So what you need to do is this:

    Go into the BIOS again - F2 then F2
    Disable Boot Booster - Under the Boot menu
    Exit the BIOS F10
    During restart hit F9

    Then tell me what you have at this point as the manual is vague.

    What we're hoping for here is the ability to run some utilities, not a full recovery.

    Bit strange it's taking long... The manual gave the impression that there should be a a few prompts and check boxes.
