I'd like to have the ability to install boinc as a service to run 24/7 without login required. And I'd like to also have boinc run a second instance @ login so that GPU can be used. I have read instructions on instructing boinc projects to only run GPU, but I have not found a tutorial that would encompass what I have envisioned.

That would only be possible if you added a Virtual Machine, installed an OS inside it, installed BOINC as a service in there, and installed BOINC as a normal installation in the main operating system. Not worth the time, really.
Please do not private message me for tech support. Use the forums for that. Tech PMs will be ignored.
