Disable the starting Windows boot logo (splash screen)
16 February 2007

It is possible to disable the XP splash screen which will speed up the overall boot process slightly . But remember removing the splash screen will also bar you from seeing any boot-up message that might come up (for instance, if there is a system crash, the chkdsk screen will not show up, nor will tools like convert, etc). But if your system is problem free, it should not matter.

To disable the boot logo, right-click on 'My Computer', choose 'Properties' and then select the 'Advance" tab. Under the 'Startup and Recovery' section, click 'Settings'. Then again in the 'system startup' sectiion, clock the 'Edit' button of the 'Default operating system' section . Now the boot.ini file will open in a Notepad. Edit the boot.ini . Add '/noguiboot' , right after '/fastdetect' . Make the necessary changes and save the Boot.ini file. Make sure you create a backup of the file in case you mess it up. Now when you restart, the splash screen won't appear. It can be re-enabled by removing the new switch.
