    ^^ - /noguiboot will remove the splashscreen (I use it), but I dont see any boot messages coming up... What messages are you expecting? If you want the initial BIOS messages, you should check the bios for option to disable the logo... In Safe mode, WinXP will list the drivers being loaded... But in regular mode, I dont think WinXP gives any messages...
