Hiding the Windows Boot Splash Screen (Windows Embedded Standard 2009)


You can prevent the Windows splash screen from being displayed while the run-time image is booting.

You cannot replace the Windows XP logo with a custom logo, because doing so violates the Microsoft EULA.

  1. Edit the c:\boot.ini file of your run-time image with Microsoft® Notepad, or a similar text editor.

  2. Add the /NOGUIBOOT switch to the boot arc path of your run-time image. For example type,

    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows Embedded Standard" /NOGUIBOOT
