Disabling The Windows XP Boot Logo

Tip Difficulty Level: Novice

Incase you didn't already know, It is possible to disable the Windows XP boot-up splash screen, although this only speeds up the boot process very slightly so there isn't a real need to use this tweak.

How This Tip Works

1. Edit boot.ini
2. Add " /noguiboot" right after "/fastdetect".

Once you reboot, the splash screen will be gone. It can be re-enabled by removing the new switch.
