    Changing the Windows 7 Boot Screen back to Vista's boot screen


    Hi all,
    I find that the Windows 7 boot screen slows down the boot process on my machine. Is there a way to restore the old Vista scrolling loading bar? I know it's there as my netbook uses it.

    Thanks.

    Boot manager is the same as in vista! It doesn't slow down your machine.
    Or do you mean something different with "boot screen"?

    I mean the actual loading screen.

    I want to get rid of this:

    That's just a simple animation and doesn't slow down the boot process. In the meantime it's starting windows, loading drivers etc.

    But you can use this Coder for Life - Project - Windows 7 Boot Updater

    I'd still rather have the loading bar instead of the animation.

    Hold down the Windows Key on your keyboard and press "R".

    Then in the Run Dialog Box that appears, type in msconfig, click Boot and select "No GUI Boot".

    This removes that whole phase from booting, which speeds up the time your netbook takes to boot.

    Hope this helps
