BTW Brink, I've read many of your tutorials. Excellent stuff!!

It's mostly just for whether one wants the animated GUI showing or not. If they select not to, then usually it's probably as you say, but there's also the possibility of shaving a fraction of a second or so. I haven't put a stopwatch to it though.

It would be interesting if we could substitute our own graphic or animation in place of the animated logo.

Yeah, that would be nice, but Microsoft locked that down for security purposes to help prevent anything (ex: malware) from being able to run prior to Windows 8 and your AV program starting.

What's the maximum gain in startup time (in sec) can we expect?

Hello Nilank,

It may help shave off a couple of more seconds at most from your startup time.

That's something exciting, no matter be it some seconds, thanks for the great tip. Firstly it was you who helped me decrease my shutdown time, and now it's again you! I am in love with you (no I was kidding )

Hello Nathan,

Are you in Safe Mode or normal mode when trying to do this?

If in Safe Mode, then boot to normal mode and try again.

If in normal mode, then you may have a pre existing MBR issue. See if doing an Startup Repair may help fix your MBR and allow you to do this afterwards.

Hope this helps for now,
Shawn
