Hi @Leehom

A no-GUI boot is like booting with a black screen (like in command prompt).

If you are talking about Windows, it is safe to boot without GUI. A link to no-GUI Windows 8 boot:
There are other tutorials on the net for other Windows OS.

Although, I don't think that removing the GUI will give you a significant boot time advantage. To increase boot time, you might want to decrease startup items, decrease files on the desktop and move it to another partition. Those will give you significant boot sppedup.

The no GUI boot simply gets rid of the graphical moving bar during start-up. It saves a few seconds but without it you can't know if your system is frozen during start-up.
OS boot information shows a list of what's loading as it happens (during start-up).

suppose :
If you do schedule a disk check at start up you can EASILY be fooled into thinking your computer has frozen, without the GUI to tell you what's going on.
