Just go to this location:

If the location is not available in your w7 then make the folders, I did the same and working fine for me.
Here are mine screens:
If someone wish to use those screens.

Just back from a VM and my Dll method works better. I mounted and replaced all them images in the oobe\info\backgrounds. It might work if you use the xml I mentioned above.
I've updated my renamed 7background.rar available in my signature down below and with ver 6.1.6 of the Se7en_UA will eliminate 1 more of the default yuck screen's
this was my login with your methods
Ok I got the acutal problem (hopefully), I am on 32 bit and you are on 64 bit. Did you enable the OEM background functionality?????????
Run the registry editor (Win Key + R and then type regedit, press enter)
Navigate to HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Authentication\LogonUI\Background , double click on key named OEMBackground and change its value to 1 (If you cannot find the path or the key go ahead and create it, remember OEMBackground is a Dword)
Number of downloads: 85
Now your OEM Background functionality is enabled.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Authentication\LogonUI\Background] "OEMBackground"=dword:00000001 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\System] "UseOEMBackground"=dword:00000001

are you talking about the logon screen - or the boot screen?
logon screen: can be changed via registry (i think its mentioned somewehe else)
the bootscreen: are you sure this is a animated graphic (gif or something like that?)
here is stated that the animation is a simple xml file -> link:
not sure, but maybe it helps

Here is the path from 7zip (each # is the image #) so winRE.wim Image #1

I had discovered another, MountDir\Windows\System32\oobe\FirstUXRes.WIM
thats the simple animation with black screen after reboot before Setupcoplete, lot of bmps in there, hard to replace but I can do the overall black screen
