No GUI Boot displays an aurora type affair instead of the Windows logo.
Boot Log you have already answered correctly.
Base Video starts the computer using a standard VGA video driver.
OS Boot Information suprisingly displays information as to what's loading during the W7 bootup.
Hope this helps :)

hm is there a way to change the font size when enabling boot os information? And propably the font colour/backround ?

I wanted to give it a nice look And i thought i saw it already somewhere (with some aurora like backround + a smaller font.. but i checked both already and it didnt work).

You can change your font size in 'personalization':
