What is the industry-standard solution for touchscreen "kiosk" embdedded computers (in public places) running Windows to hide things as much as possible when the machine boots, until the main application starts?
Are there customized BIOS for this + customized Windows Professional versions for this application?
For example, I read that many ATM cash machines still use Windows 7 (or even XP in some cases!), idem for train ticket machines in train stations.
Example of screens that would be necessary to remove:
BIOS POST screen (usually white font on black background)
Windows "Safe mode" boot menu if the previous shutdown was not done properly
Brief view of the Window Desktop + Taskbar during a few seconds, before my app automatically starts
