How to disable the boot logo in Windows XP

By disabling the Windows XP splash screen you can speed up your computer's boot time. The increase is slight but it noticeable.

Here's how you do it:

- Click Start -> Run
- Type msconfig and click OK
- Click the BOOT.INI tab
- Tick /NOGUIBOOT [See pic below]
- Click OK (You may have to restart)

The next time your computer boots up, no more Windows splash screen. You can re-enable the splash screen by un-ticking /NOGUIBOOT

Thanks for that hint! I would also like to show a user defined splash screen at windows startup... Maybe that is also possible somehow...
