Step 2. While the system is starting up, you'll be presented with a black and white screen that says hit the F4 key to enter recovery. Hit the F4 Key. You may want to tap the F4 key repeatedly at bootup so you don't miss your window of oppertunity to enter the console as it can be easily overlooked.
