Re: How Can I Remove Splash Image?
Edit /boot/grub/grub.conf and remove "rhgb" from the kernel command lines. That will show the classic scrolling [ OK ] lines of the init stuff that happens "behind" that pretty graphic. You also can remove "quiet" from the kernel command line to see some debug spew that flies by "behind" a black screen before the graphic screen starts. I doubt that any of this will make a measurable speed difference. You should review your running services. There are many of those enabled by default that most of us don't need. Now, all those things being started up really do slow down booting.
