The boot screen in Windows Vista is plain and lame. To change it follow these simple steps.

  • Go to the start menu and type msconfig and press enter.
  • If prompted, select Continue
  • The System Configuration window will come up. Click on the Boot tab.
  • Aurora Boot Screen

  • Select your Windows Vista installation.
  • Check the No GUI boot box.
  • Press OK.
  • Click on Restart.
  • Your computer will now reboot, and you will see the Aurora boot screen.
