Hi all ,

I need some help with my laptop in booting. Someone told me that choosing the No gui boot option makes the computer boot faster? However there are also many other options like, boot log, safe video, safe boot (with minimal, alternate shell etc.. options) vista.

What do they mean and what is the difference between them? is it recommended to use one over the other? which one should i use cause i dont really understand the difference between them at all...

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you ...

If you don't understand the difference you probably don't want to use them at all.

The no GUI boot simply gets rid of the graphical moving bar during start-up. It saves a few seconds but without it you can't know if your system is frozen during start-up.

Base video loads it in VGA mode, (640x480 16-bit)

OS boot information shows a list of what's loading as it happens (during start-up).

if you want your laptop/computer to startup super fast
press windows key + R and type msconfig in the tabs click boot
put timeout at 3 seconds, click NO gui boot, goto advanced and click
mamium number of processes and then click maxium usage of ram and click apply
and the restart your laptop/pc.
THESES ARE THE SETTING I HAVE ON MY LAPTOP AND IT BOOTS IN 11 SECONDS:cool:

DO NOT set the NOGUI boot option. If you do this then schedule a disk check at start up you can EASILY be fooled into thinking your computer has frozen, without the GUI to tell you what's going on.

This is from experience.
