Uncovering The Hidden Truth – Vista Boot Screen

The Windows Vista Boot Screen is relatively pointless, but Microsoft decided to hide a more attractive boot screen that can easily be enabled with almost no trouble whatsoever.

Click on the Start menu; in the search box, type in ‘msconfig’ and hit enter.

Click the Boot tab, and then check the “No GUI boot” checkbox.

OK out of the dialogue boxes and restart your PC, the new screen should be visible. Just a heads-up, after booting into Windows you may receive a warning from Windows Defender. You can enable the system config utility using the tray icon and this error will go away.

    I only learnt recently of this ‘hidden’ boot screen. But I must say, on trying it I am less than impressed with it. Good guide though 🙂

    Well you see, it is a nice tweak for if you get bored of the standard boot screen. However, the question i asked myself while typing was ironically, ‘Why am I still typing?’, it really is not meant to improve anything – the hidden screen has a nice look to it, but personally i don’t think i will be changing my default in the near future!
    Thanks for the comment!!
