Vistaheads Tip#19 - Enable the Hidden "Aurora" Boot Screen in Vista
The default Vista Boot Screen shows a bar with green lines going from left to right. Very spectacular indeed.

There is a "hidden" boot screen that is called Aurora that can be unhidden by:

1. Click on Start, then in the search box key in "msconfig".

2. When MSCONFIG starts click on the Boot tab.

3. Tick the "No GUI boot" checkbox.

4. Click OK and reboot your PC.

Have Fun,
regards

Steve

There is also a "hidden" Aurora animation in Vista.

To see the magic just type "winsat aurora" in the start menu search box, and hit Enter.

To exit, click Esc.

There is a utility built into Windows Vista used for benchmarking, called the System Assessment Tool; and it uses this Aurora animation.
