Windows 7: Changing Display of Installing GPOs

Changing Display of Installing GPOs

Morning everyone,

I am working with Windows 7 Professional 32-bit, in a network environment and I am trying to test it with our old GPOs we use on XP machines.

I am currently trying to install GPSI's such as Office etc.

When I reboot the machine after a GPUpdate I can only see 'Please Wait' while it installs the updates, but I know some of these updates will hang. I won't know what's hanging if I can't see what stage of the update it is at.

Is there anyway of customising this area of the startup to display which updates are installing?

Like in Windows XP where the box would appear in the middle of the screen saying "Installing Managed Software <Program Name>" etc.

Thanks for any help you can give regarding this.

The answer to this I have since found out is to enable 'verbose' messages - we did this through a GPO on the domain controller. Can now fully see what is installing when loading Windows.
