    That screenshot looks like it was loading Win7 in Safe Mode. And from what I remember of Win7 it doesn't look complete. There are posts here about booting into Safe Mode, can't point to a specific post but a Search should find it.

    Not talking about safe mode, i am talking about when you select this https://i.imgur.com/lwxLvdw.png
    it would show loading of drivers while you are booting up the system

    here is a link for windows 7 but as i said cant seem to get this to work on Windows 10

    Give this a try in Group Policy Editor

    Navigate to Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > System
    In the list on the right,
    Enable Display highly detailed status messages

    Hi, I think you need to check the OS boot information box in msconfig

    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
