Posted by accident in the Windows 95/98*Grinler Forum.

I am trying to find out what software to use to get screen shots of the XP windows that appear before booting to the Windows desktop. This is in a corporate environment. I'm trying to get screen captures of the logon window and a couple of other windows that pop up. I believe there is software to do this but haven't been able to find it.

The screen shots are for training. Any help or suggestions appreciated.

How about a digital camera?

In order to do this you'll have to load a capture program prior to the POST - not an easy task!

I'd suggest the digital camera like buddy215 suggested/
