Disable The Windows XP Splash Screen

Ever wonder what’s going on behind that splash screen?

Right click My Computer -> Properties -> Advanced -> Startup and Recovery ->

Edit BOOT.INI. Add “/SOS” right after “/fastdetect” with a space
between. The line will look something like this:

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

When you’re finished. The first part, multi(0)….. may not be the
same on your machine. Upon restarting, the splash screen will be gone.
It can be re-enabled by removing the new switch.
