Some users are not satisfied with the loading screen when they log in. It can be easily removed by editing one system file. This feature is often used by those users who want to know what happens to the system when the boot screen appears.
Editing system files
Before you start editing system files, it is worth taking some time to back them up. Sometimes it happens that while editing system files on the network, a power surge or a complete power outage may occur. Most often, the file editors that use them are saving at this moment. Thus, you can permanently lose the key to boot the system.
If you do not want to face such cases, it is recommended to create backup copies of your files. This can be done in a number of ways. In one case, it is desirable to simply copy the file being edited into the same directory, changing only the name. Otherwise, it is advisable to make a copy of the file and save it on removable media.
To remove the boot screen, you need to edit Boot.ini, which is located in the root directory of the system drive. In this case, the best option would be to create a duplicate file by changing the name of the copy. For example, for the Boot.ini file, it makes sense to create a copy named Boot1.ini. Initially, both files should have the same content, you need to modify the Boot.ini file.
Open My Computer, then double-click the C: drive icon. To display hidden files, which is Boot.ini, go to the top menu "Tools" and select "Folder Options". In the window that opens, go to the "View" tab and check the box next to the item "Show hidden files and folders", and opposite "Hide protected system files" the checkbox must be unchecked. To the warning that appears, answer positively, then click the "OK" button.
Make a copy of the file, then open the original version to download from. In Notepad or another text editor, find the line that ends with / fastdetect.
Add / SOS to this expression. Thus, the end of the line will look like this: / fastdetect / SOS. Now click the "Save" button or press the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + S.
Restart your computer to see the result of your actions. Instead of a loading screen, you'll see a cycle of operations that you never knew existed. To return to the boot screen, you must remove the / SOS value from the Boot.ini file or restore the first version of this file.
