Yes, a source would be good too, where the users could get further information how this methods works, etc...

Do you know what this method does? How much does this improve the startup process?
I am asking because I have had some bad experiences with editing something in the BOOT.ini in the past. :biggrin:

It prevents the boot UI (Windows logo, moving bar, etc.) from being shown. It also prevents you from seeing chkdsk's progress, if I'm not mistaken. Handle with care.

So, actually its more like a compromise because when the chkdsk and progress bar isn't shown, you won't see any error reports right?

Yes, you're right with that. That's why I reversed this tweak after having applied it for some time in the past.
