Recently my Win 7 installation takes a very long time to boot up and in order for me to detect the problem I need to boot Windows in verbose mode.
Now I need windows to dump everything it's doing in the boot process on monitor screen. I wonder how can this be done?
Over at How-To Geek there is a post on how to do this.
Hit Start, type
msconfig, to get to the System Configuration window below
Boot tab and check the
OS boot information. Checking the log may also be useful to read after booting.
