that should be the option key not control.

you also might have to do it from a cold boot, shut the machine down,
hold those keys THEN power it on.  (apple designers assumed everyone
has 3 arms) 

keep holding them down till the machine reboots itself 3 times.  if it
does not reboot itself it didn't work.
