Hey,
Has anyone noticed that XPSP2 removes the "Home edition" or "Professional" label below the WindowsXP on the black bootup screen? Does anyone know how to get it back, short of reinstalling XP and not installing SP2?

Thanks..

What's the big deal with losing Prof. on the splash screen ... if it will make you happy, go to System Properties and you'll see your version there ... take a screen shot and put it up on the wall ...

Perhaps "professional" made him feel special, I for one coughed on juice when I noticed it the first time.

Yes it has done it to my version as well. Also on Home Edition it changes the colour of the bar to a calming professional blue rather than a bogey coloured green. It has also changed the copyright to just say Microsoft Co-operation - tryin to cover up the age of the operating system lol!

Just outta interest is the loading bar of Media Center Edition pink??

Dont really care since I use my own custom boot screens. Youll still get the same functionalities of whatever version you have.

Just go with the flow,i guess microsoft wanted to further genericify its os lmao, get a custom boot screen and be done with the non professional displaying a** ms default screen.
The best program to use for this in my limited experience is style xp www.tgtsoft.com
I have windows xp pirated edition according to my boot screen (obviously its not "pirated" but it looks cool, kinda has a pirates of the caribbean thing going on.)
