How to enable the Hidden Aurora Boot Screen


Default Vista Boot Screen


Aurora Boot Screen

If you are tired of the default black boot screen in Windows Vista there is a way to replace it to a more highly visual bootscreen.

Vista has two bootscreen one is the default black bootscreen and the other one is the hidden Aurora bootscreen. They say that the Aurora bootscreen is disabled by default because of potential hardware issues, but that doesn’t make sense because the minimum video card requirements to even run Vista should handle the new bootscreen without any problem.

Here’s how to make your Vista bootscreen more cooler 😉

Click on Start and type “msconfig”


Click on the Boot tab and then check the “No GUI boot” checkbox.


Hit OK and restart your computer. You should see your new boot screen immediately.
