Group Policy Software Installs Too Silent on Windows 7

On Windows XP you could see what software is being deployed with GPO at startup.
Windows 7 however only shows Please wait.

If you want to see the information on Windows 7 you must enable it in a GPO.
You canĀ find the setting in:

Computer Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\System “Verbose vs normal status messages” = Enabled

Directs the system to display highly detailed status messages.

If you enable this setting, the system displays status messages that reflect each step in the process of starting, shutting down, logging on, or logging off the system.

This setting is designed for sophisticated users that require this information.

Note: This setting is ignored if the “Remove Boot / Shutdown / Logon / Logoff status messages” setting is enabled.
