Screen capture during boot up


K

Ken Springer

Does anyone know of a way to do screen captures during boot up?

I'd like to avoid the alternative methods of using a camera or virtual
machine.

I intentionally multiposted the question. I didn't want an answer that
applied to only Windows 7 to confuse anyone who was using XP. And have
the XP user trying to use a Windows 7 solution that wouldn't work and
getting frustrated. <G>

And, vice versa.

Saw your Win7 post and replied.

For a real machine, a camera is your best bet.

You could use a second computer equipped with a capture
card, but if the booting computer changes screen resolution
on the fly, I don't know how well a capture card would handle
the change. A camera is just, so much easier.

There seems to be enough instrumentation in the kernel to
support bootvis, but I don't think it includes taking
video or screen shots :) That would be one deluxe
OS, to do something like that.

A camera's not going to happen. Most likely, VM software.

According to Apple's home page for OS X, it's the most powerful
operating system in the world. Didn't you know that?? <choke, choke,
cough> LOL
