Kill the Windows XP splash screen
You can disable the windows XP splash screen, but you should be aware that removing the splash screen will also cause you not to see any boot-up messages, such as chkdsk, but it should boot a little quicker also.
- Edit boot.ini
- Add ” /noguiboot” right after “/fastdetect”.
If you need to go back, or have trouble, you can simply remove the new switch from your boot.ini file.
