Wrong. You can actually turn it completely off with the msconfig command. When you go to msconfig, there’s a checkbox under the BOOT.INI called /NOGUIBOOT. If you check that box, then there won’t be that overlay Windows XP screen anymore.
Now the question is… why would you want to? No clue. It doesn’t make it boot any faster, but maybe you’re just sick of seeing the logo pop up. Either way, it’s different and it can be done.
