A litle drawback when shortening W7 boot time

Ever noticed the affinity MS has for just about absolutely refusing to follow the otherwise admiral qualities we care for, ie; Burger King's motto ('have it your way')?

Towards cutting down on the virtual needlessly exacerbated boot time (by merely unticking the "No GUI boot" tick box), I find that by eliminating at least that aspect of MS's advertising, boot time is nearly cut in half.

However this results in the momentary black screen that is adulterated with eight green dash lines separated with something like three blank spaces (at the screen's top left corner).

While disabling the Windows boot screen (via the option found in Control Panel>All Control Panel Items>Administrative Tools>System Configuration>"boot" tab) obviously is an afforded user perogative, what might explain the reasoning for and/or the removal of these green dashes?

It seems common place that usually unavoidable operating issues ensue just about anytime 'we' try and assume any amount of control over 'our' operating systems. As such, one must conclude it's by 'design' or lack of it.

So again, excluding applying black electrician's tape over them, might someone share the know how to remove the green dashes (assuming that doesn't create a new set of obstacles)?

I'm only guessing at this, but I suspect that by using 'no GUI boot' you are essentially bypassing the Win7 'flower' logo which, if Windows is loading properly, will run smoothly & let you know all is well. By ignoring it you are probably leaving your graphics system to do what it likes - in your case you get the green dashes, with another graphics card you'll get something else.

Yes, thanks for the reply.

Of note, I posted with my inflections based on the assumption that the simple process of Windows booting up without "advertising", shouldn't necessarily misconboobulate any Windows compatible graphics card's (what should be a default black screen).
