How To Disable XP Boot Up Screen

How many times do you find yourself staring mindlessly at the boot screen during Windows startup? I couldn’t even estimate the total amount of time I have wasted staring at the flowing blue bar. Here I will cover the steps to eliminate XP’s boot up screen. Not only will it save you the pain of staring at Microsoft’s logo, but it may actually shave a bit of time off the booting process.
In demonstrating this quick and simple tip, I am using XP Professional SP3. First click Start >> Run and type in ‘msconfig’ (without the quotes) and click OK.

The System Configuration Utility will open, now click on the BOOT.INI tab. From the list under Boot Options place a check mark next to “NOGUIBOOT” and click OK.

You will then be prompted to restart, and when you do the familiar XP boot up screen will be long gone! This will only work for Windows XP.
