How far into the boot are you able to get?

What I mean is this... Are you able to see the bios information... black screen with computer information... prior to the blue screen?

Can you boot to Safe mode by hitting the F8 key prior to your blue screen? You must hit the F8 key before the time you would have seen the Windows splash screen.
