    A new boot command switch was recently discovered in Windows XP and Windows Server 2003:


    Use this switch to have Windows XP or Windows Server 2003 display an installable splash screen instead of the standard splash screen. First, create a 16-color (any 16 colors) 640x480 bitmap and save it in the Windows directory with the name Boot.bmp. Then add "/bootlogo /noguiboot" to the boot.ini selection. /noguiboot is not necessary. it disables the display of the progress bar.

    So now you can relive your Win9x custom boot screen glory days of yester year, or add a nifty corporate logo to your XP systems so that your users know who owns the machine, without having to edit ntoskrnl.

    More boot command switches.
