Disable the Windows XP Startup Screen

If you want to see what goes behind the Windows Startup Screen, you have to disable the
Windows boot screen.

Right click ?My Computer?. Select ?Properties?. Select the ?Advanced? tab. In the ?Startup and Recovery? section, click ?Settings?. In the ?System
Startup? section, click Edit to open the boot.ini file in Notepad. You will see a line that looks similar to the one below:

multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS=”Microsoft Windows XP Professional”
/fastdetect

To disable the Startup Screen, change the line as below:

multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS=”Microsoft Windows XP Professional”
/fastdetect /sos.

Note that there is a space between ‘fastdetect’ and ‘/sos’.
Close Notepad, click Yes when Notepad asks if you want to save your changes.
Exit System Properties. Reboot computer and the Startup Screen will be gone.
