Show Bootlog at startup screen

#1
After using XP for many years, I now have a laptop with Win 8.1.
With XP I had it setup so that when the computer booted,
it would show all the files loading on the screen.
How do I fix win8 so it shows the files loading at the startup screen?
Is it done with EasyBCD or ?

Thanks for any comments.

Hi OldGrampa, welcome to our forums!

In EasyBCD under "Advanced Settings" tick the "verbose boot" option.

Tx mqudsi, I have the sos/verbose-boot mode, ticked as on,
but still no list going by on startup.
I think it might have something to do with the HP logo.

Can you please post the contents of EasyBCD's normal and detailed mode (both)?
