HOWTO: Turn Windows 7 "Please Wait..." into useful messages.

When booting Windows Vista or 7, you'll see it quite often just says "Please Wait." To change "Please Wait" into useful messages, like "Installing Office 2010" or "Please Wait for the User Profile Service" etc change the policy setting:

Computer Configuration | Administrative Templates | System | "Verbose vs normal status messages". Change state to "Enabled"
