You can change the Windows 2003 and XP startup screens to display any 16-color, 640x480 bitmap image. Simply create the bitmap and save it as boot.bmp in the \%systemroot% folder (e.g., C:\windows). Then modify the boot.ini file as follows:
** Modify the boot.ini file to be writable: attrib boot.ini -r -s -h
** Add the /bootlogo switch and the /noguiboot switch, as the example below shows:
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS=''Windows Server 2003, Enterprise'' /fastdetect /bootlogo /noguiboot
(If you don't add the /noguiboot switch, the standard Windows 2003 logo will be overlaid on your custom image.)
** Save the file, then reset the boot.ini attributes: attrib boot.ini +r +s +h
If you've never done this before, boot.ini isn't something to mess around with. You've been warned...
Does anyone know how to go about changing the splash screen?
Don't really know how to go about doing it.
