I really don't want to make myself look like a fool but I highly doubt that you can. During the boot screen is when they load all the basic drivers which would include the graphics driver. Then the other drivers and loaded afterward.

When I frist read the thread I thought maybe something is MSconfig but thing after looking at it the information in there isn't loaded until after the boot screen.
