I want to boot in my Compaq server GS80 Tru80 in single user mode.
But when I make the” B fl - S “command, the server don' T respond.

At the same time when I make the “boot” command the server does not show the estapes of starting, and posts the window of safety. (login and password). Help me please. I want to boot on single user mode.
