Windows 7: Trying to shorten the post screen

Trying to shorten the post screen

Have a tester machine with a Q9650 core DG43NB Intel board running 32bit 7 Home premium and booting from a Crucial M4 28GGB SSD.

Now boot to password to desktop is currently faster than my Sandy Bridge build at 35secs but I think it would be super fast if I could "slim down" the Intel post screen.

I have disabled the set up and boot key prompts but cannot find the setting for that front Intel screen which lasts about 15 - 20 secs. Have done a few Googles but cannot find what I am looking for.

So does anyone have experience with this particular board and BIOS please?

Have you put a checkmark in the "no gui boot" box in msconfig? It's on the boot tab.

Thanks Ignatzatsonic I didn't even know of that route my Giga board has it in the BIOS settings and I just couldn't find it in the Intel BIOS setup.

Matter of fact I haven't seen it in the BIOS of my Toshiba laptop either but have just seen your ref and done the same to it to speed it up too

Shorten the space between tray icons?
I've Googled and seen a couple of topics, but no comprehensive answer. Is it possible to modify Aero theme library or a registry setting to decrease the space between tray icons? Or any other resource? It's definitely possible, setting exists somewhere, but I expect nobody may know where exactly.
