Till Windows 7, we all have enjoyed the startup sound very well, but unfortunately these stuff no longer exists in Windows 8 or later. According to Microsoft, Windows 8 is more hardly concentrated on the fast startup and not on these luxurious accessories which could slow down the booting of operating system. Thus for the usage of less number of resources when you start your system and even when you shut down, Windows sounds are disabled so far.
