    Using Bootvis

    I don't know if anyone may or may not need this but I came across it while I was researching.

    A small write up on using bootvis

    Tried the bootvis downloaded from the site mentioned & it prevented the Windows sign-on screen from appearing when it restarted the PC...black screen for >5 minutes. Hit reset button to restart, got 'Windows is starting up' but PC froze. Reset again...got black screen again. WTF? Looks like my PC is hosed!

    hit F8 when rebooting right after the BIOS disappears.. then pick last known good configuration..

    that will get you back in to windows

    and then always make sure you download microsoft stuff from MICROSOFT..

    I run bootvis and get the following:



    Why doesn't it give me any info on:

    Cpu Usage
    Driver Delay
    Boot Activity?

    Also, what is the "Warning! Disk write caching is disabled." mean?

    I think it quit working on me. Bootvis froze on the last screen on me. I don't think it just quit but I guess it could still be going. It has had this screen up for about the last 15 minutes:
