Ever wonder what`s going on behind that splash screen? Well, now you can find out!

Right click My Computer

Select Properties then click on the Advanced tab.

Next click Settings under Startup and Recovery.

Click Edit

You`ll need to edit this file "BOOT.INI"

Add /SOS right after /fastdetect with a space between them.

The line should look something like this:

multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\Windows="Microsoft Windows Whistler Professional" /fastdetect /SOS

After you restart, the splash screen should be gone! You can set it back simple by removing the /SOS switch
