    Hello dtoxic,

    I played around with this, and I see the same thing as you.
    Selecting the OS boot information checkbox in Win 7 works differently than in Win 10 (and Win 8.1).
    In Win 7 i see a list of drivers installing, i don't see this in 8.1 or 10.
    I don't know of a workaround/fix, but it's not just you.

    I've never selected the OS boot information checkbox before, so no experience here.

    Now, can i ask some questions ?
    The W7 driver list scrolls by so fast i can't read it.
    If a driver install fails/hangs does the list "pause" there, so you can see what driver is causing a problem ?
    Is that the reason for using this msconfig checkbox ?

    I don't know if they broke this or changed the way it works after Win 7
    The list scrolls fast if you have an SSD (HDD different story), you dont have to read it (unless it hangs)
    The drivers are not installed they are loaded,and yes if there is a problem with any one driver the list stops (hence easier to troubleshoot problems if they occur in that stage of loading),Yes thats the reason (i think) for using that particular check box.

    Nothing vitally important, i am just used to that :) anyway thx for trying.

    Yea, i said installing by mistake, i did see they are loading

    I can see where this info could help troubleshooting.
    I've never had a driver load issue, i don't know if there is a log that show's this that could help.
    Someone else may be able to help with that, or a recommended 3rd party utility for W10.

    Well on the same page,if you select boot log a file will be created somewhere in windows folder (forgot where) there you can see all the drivers loading, or you can use "Autoruns" by sysinternals.com to see all the drivers that are loading/loaded.

    I have Autoruns (and the sysinternals suite) and use it as needed.
    I'm gonna leave this checkbox enabled in W7 and see if i notice any difference going forward.
    I have OS's on an SSD, and a second or two longer booting wouldn't matter to me.

    Thanks
