My Windows Vista installation is hanging on the loading bar and never leaves it.

Is there a way to see what it's actually doing? Such as by getting the text print-out of what it's loading as an alternative to the graphical loading bar start-up?

Yes

1.) Open MsConfig from the Start Search or from a command prompt (CMD).

2.) Select the System Configuration “Boot” tab and place a check in the box for “No GUI Boot”

3.) Then reboot your PC
