I am always looking for as much information when it comes to turning the computer on and off. This time I am interesting in getting the driver information like you use to get in Windows 7 during Safe Boot.

How to boot Windows 7 in verbose mode?

This question gives an answer to exactly what I am looking for however only works in Windows 7. I tried it for Windows 10 and I got exactly what I got last time (Boot Screen)

My Question

How do I get the driver information like the other question but for Windows 10? Have Microsoft stopped this from happening?

How to boot in verbose boot for Windows 10?

  1. Start > Run > Type "regedit" (without the quotes) and select from the list.

  2. Find the key:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System

  3. You might want to export this as a backup first or note down the settings if there's already a "VerboseStatus" field. In most cases, it won't be there yet.

  4. Right-click under that and create a New > DWORD Value.

  5. Type VerboseStatus and double-click that new key, giving it the value data set to 1.

Next time you reboot, Windows will now give you verbose startup, shutdown, logon, and logoff status messages.

    I tried that however still doesn't work. I do get verbose for shutdown, logon and other though. I have just thought that it could be because of disk checking which I skip each time. I will let it run soon and comment back what happened. – E2Busy Nov 29 '15 at 15:50

You enabled it exactly how you enabled it in Windows 7.

Search for "System Configuration" on the Start Menu and enable "OS Boot information".

  • I realized only after I hit submit that, this is an identical answer, but it worked for me so I am keeping it. Feel free to downvote if you want. – Ramhound Nov 29 '15 at 14:36
  • I won't downvote because if it worked for you then it might be a problem with my PC. I will wait for more answers. – E2Busy Nov 29 '15 at 14:42

The options are still there, just much more hidden... When I played with it it seemed to give less information though (could have just been me though). I think this is what your are looking for, ignore the first part and scroll down to Enable Verbose Service Startup/Shutdown Messages, the same method works:

You can also use a program called Ultimate Windows Tweaker http://www.thewindowsclub.com/ultimate-windows-tweaker-4-windows-10 There is an option under User Accounts called Enable Verbose Logon Messages.

This functionality seem to be broken. Best thing you can do is vote for Microsoft to bring it back on Windows Feedback Hub:
