    Pre Logon Messages

    Hi

    On Windows XP before you logon you see messages like the below:

    Preparing network connections
    Running Startup Scripts
    Installing managed software xxx

    But on Windows Vista you see "Please Wait"

    Is there a group policy on server 2008 to set it to the XP style?

    I hope that made sense...

    Thanks

    Z

    Not sure if it will do it, as under XP/2003/2000 it just made it go into more detail, but have you tried it with Verbous mode enabled? Should be under Machine Group Policy.

    Not seen any in 2008

    I think the messages were part of the GINA in 2000/XP/2003..

    Since Vista's GINA has been completely re-written Im guessing these messages have become obselete.

    Try this policy setting:

    Computer Configuration\Policies\System

    It is the 'verbose vs normal status messages'. Set to Enabled.

    It may well display too much information, but is worth a try.
