MSDOS.SYS FILE - MODs
I've created a fairly cool array of "boot-up" or "logon" screen but I'm left with a quandry. Directly after my computer displays it's first POST screen, <u>my</u> logon page (instead of Windoze) appears. Beautiful. THEN, my screen flickers and a few more POST lines appear, then my logon reappears, then more POST language, then my desktop. I want to configure so my own logon stays on the monitor till the desktop appears.
My MSDOS.SYS looks like this:
Are there certain values I can change to get my desired results? Or should I be looking elsewhere, e.g., autoexec.bat file? Something like "echo off" or "echo on" written in? It's been awhile since I've used those commands. Any help would be appreciated!
Not a total solution... (i.e. from within the registy) but try booting with no config.sys or autoexec.bat. It seems to me the login screen disappears when autoexec is executed.
I'm not big on DOS, but I seem to remember that if you make ECHO OFF the first line in autoexec.bat, the commands won't be displayed on-screen as they're processed.
Etruscan's solution should work also. Since Windows doesn't require that config.sys and autoexec.bat even be processed, just try disabling them with msconfig.
Thx, guys. Though I do not have config.sys enabled and only one line in autoexec.bat...
I'll disable that and see.
