    WinXP Boot Screen

    Anyone know anything about changing the boot screen when Windows XP is loading? The one with the blue bar going across in the middle. I know in windows 98, it was the logo.sys file but never worked out how to edit it/make it animate.

    Yeah, it's WAY different from editing the 98 splash screen. You have to edit all kinds of stuff. Let me see if I can find the program I used to use...

    I think it was called XP Edit, I don't really remember, but it looks right. Try that.

    make sure to backup your ntoskrnl.exe file. That's where the boot stuff is stored.

    @sagekoala: That program looks a little safer to use. Looks like it doesn't make changes to the ntoskrnl. Do you actually use it? I see on their website that it may be incompatible with some drivers/bios?

    I use LogonUI Boot Randomizer. It's free, can do both Boot and Login screens, and works with SP1 and SP2.

    yeah, i use it on my athlon64 box and haven't had a single issue with it. you pretty much just pick which one you want to use and hit apply, reboot and there it is.
