The default boot screen of Windows Vista is a black screen containing just a progress bar and the text “Microsoft Corporation”. Those of you who are tired of this boring default look of the Windows Vista Boot Screen, can enable the hidden boot screen.

  1. click on the start orb and type in “MSCONFIG” in the searchbox and press Enter

  2. once the System Configuration tool loads, click on the Boot tab

  3. under Boot Options check “No GUI boot”

  4. click apply and then OK and restart your computer to see the new boot screen.
