  • I'm not 100% sure of this, but as I understand it F8 has been a "windows" startup option button since windows 2000.  Anyhoo, the system should have a recovery partition on the hard drive, if this has become corrupt, deleted or otherwise unavailable then you will need to obtain physical media to recover your PC.

    If you can still access Windows, then use the system restore as ManU PhiliP has suggested.
