Are you sick of looking at the Windows XP logo when you boot up your computer? Here is a quick tip on how to disable it.
Click Start \ Run and type in ‘msconfig’ and hit Enter or click OK.
Next in the System Configuration Utility select the BOOT.INI tab and place a check next to /NOGUIBOOT. Click Apply then Ok. Now when you reboot your computer you will not see the XP logo, just a blank screen.
Keep in mind that if something errors out during boot, there will not be any visual cues.
