Change Windows Vista Boot Screen

If you’re tired of the plain Vista Boot screen that shows the loading bar, you can change it to the Aurora boot screen, which is really quite nice!

  1. Click on “Start”
  2. Type “msconfig” into the “Start Search” bar, which brings up the “System Configuration” dialogue box
  3. Click on the “Boot” tab (second from left)
  4. Click on “No GUI boot” to select it
  5. Click “Ok”

Now the next time you start your computer, you’ll see the “Aurora” boot screen instead of the boring ‘loading’ bar!  Ah, beautiful!
