Logo files are in the install cabs, sulogo.sys for the startup one and logos.sys for the shutdown one.
I hate startup (and shutdown) logos and don't use them. (Not that anyone cares about that)

No, I presume that it works (worked) only on NON-ACPI machines (please read as AT power supply vs. ATX ones) just like the corresponding (say) XP one, which I never recall seeing until I got on this:
Good call jaclaz, I truly believed there wasn't one. At any rate it won't be seen on hardware powering down automatically I guess.

and it works.

C:\logo.sys --> startup logo
C:\WINDOWS\logow.sys --> 'waiting for shutdown' logo (Please wait...)
C:\WINDOWS\logos.sys --> shutdown logo (It is now safe to turn off...)
A logo.sys in the root of the bootable drive will replace the default startup logo bundled with IO.SYS.
Image must be 320x400px, 256 colors (8bpp).

The shutdown is logos.sys and the wait is logow.sys
Now I know how to change boot screen, but how to add shutdown screen (logow.sys)? Of course, if it is possible...
Add it to C:\Windows, i.e. add a file C:\Windows\logos.sys, this should apply:
Microsoft has made a few sneaky changes and this one is actually for the better. Don't worry about the original logo files. Lets just say they are protected. Just place your new logo files in the root directory and the windows directory locations.
If you should ever desire to see the original logos again, just delete the logos you've added and the originals will automatically be restored.

Unfortunately, after I copied new file to c:\windows\logow.sys and restart, when I turned on computer an error has occurred: "Explorer.exe spowodował wystąpienie błędu w <nieznany>." When I removed the file, the error no longer occurred.
Are you sure it is a "valid" file?
What is the EXACT size (in bytes) of that file?
It should be a bitmap 320x400, 256 colours , exactly 129,078 bytes in size.

I don't think Windows ME does the "Waiting for shutdown" logo thing. There doesn't appear to be one such logo in the install cabs and I can't recall having ever seen it in years of use of that OS so I am probably right on this one this time.
Yes, I changed some icons. I replaced modified Explorer.exe with the orginal and now start normally, but still I can't see "Waiting for..." screen.
Anyway, it isn't that important , is it?
