When I go into the boot options No forms of safe mode shows.

Sorry, I'm still confused. Windows boot menu should be displayed when you press F8.

Now, in some cases, the BIOS is not configured correctly so to recognise the keyboard, so the F8 is also not recognised.

But if you are using a laptop, then here we are not talking about the BIOS problem. I can only think about the "Fx" or "Fn", which sets the specific key of your laptop to be recognised as "F8", instead of something else (as when the "Fn" key is not active).

The "Fn" key locks the function of the keys to be F1...F8...F12, as with the "Caps lock", "Num lock", "Scroll Lock" and alike.

Its a laptop keyboard- Id have to open the case to find out
Sounds like your using an external keyboard? Unplug it and use laptop keyboard F8 key to get into WIN 7 boot screen while PC is booting. Then select safe mode with or without networking - your choice.

Sounds like the best bet.  You can use OTLPE to copy the data
