- Right click My Computer. Select Properties then click on the Advanced tab.
- Next click Settings under Startup and Recovery. Click Edit.
- You'll need to edit this file "BOOT.INI" Add '/SOS' right after /fastdetect with a space between them. The line should look something like this :multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\Windows="Microsoft Windows Professional" /fastdetect /SOS
After you restart, the splash screen should be gone! You can set it back by removing the /SOS switch
