Customize your boot screen!
Posted 15 November 2004 - 06:17 PM
this is my first time on this forum so please help me out. I too want to customize my boot screen but just make it show my version of windows xp (professional). The thing is whenever i turn on my comp, it just shows Windows XP as a startup and does not say home or professional anymore (version info). The reason to this is because of SP 2, which i have. Does anyone know a way i can customize my boot screen logo so that it will also say "Professional" in the bottom? I appreciate your help. THANKS!

[boot loader] timeout=30 default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS [operating systems] multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /bootlogo /noguiboot
Then, save your boot image as 4bit (16-color - any 16 colors) .bmp file, name it Boot.bmp and copy it into your windows folder.
I found this on Sysintrernals site, tried it and it works!

I for one can't see the new boot I set, it's oemkrnl.exe placed in the system32 folder, and the boologo.cmd inside cmdlines.txt to apply it. But it's not working Old boot there.
be sure u have tested ur custom OEMKRNL.exe b4 trying it in virtual mahine.... once confirmed working put it ur system32 folder (in ur XPCD)... then create a cmd file and put this lines.... & rename it to BOOTLOGO.cmd
bootcfg /RAW /A /Kernel=OEMKrnl.exe /ID 1 bootcfg /Timeout 0
put BootLogo.cmd under ur $OEM$ folder... & call it in ur CMDLINES.txt like this..
this is much easier than the one on the Guide provided here
