JSI Tip 5682. How do I disable the Windows boot time splash screen?

If you disable the boot time splash screen, it will have no effect on your boot time, but in the very rare event that a boot time message is displayed, it will enable you to see it.

To disable the boot time splash screen:

1. Open a CMD prompt and type attrib -r -s -h c:\boot.ini.

2. Use Notepad to open C:\Boot.ini.

3. Replace the /fastdetect string(s) with /fastdetect /noguiboot.

4. Save the changes and exit Notepad.

5. Open a CMD prompt and type attrib +r +s +h c:\boot.ini.
