F8 or F9 will get you into the Windows list as described. Keep pressing the two keys.

After trying both keys (f8-f9) it doesn't give me any options it just send me to a black screen with the message that says reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key!!!!!!!

Then I fear it has seen its last day. There is the freezer trick, if you want to try it.
