Create a BootLogo for Vista



If you are tired of the same old boot screen of Vista , you might want to try this out . There is a small software which lets us create a boot logo format in a matter of seconds .

First we need to download the Vista Boot Logo Generator which we are going to use to create the logo type . After installing the application , run it in an “Administrator” mode . Now we need to select an image file which we want to use as a logo . Now we need two versions of the image , both in 24 bit Bitmap format , one is 800 * 600 and the other 1024 * 768 .

 

Load them in the software and Save the logo file at some location . Now before we copy the file to the system directory , we need to take its ownership . To do that , open the command prompt in administrator mode and type the following

takeown /f C:WindowsSystem32en-USwinload.exe.mui

Now run this command, substituting Madhur for your username:

cacls C:WindowsSystem32en-USwinload.exe.mui /G Madhur:F

Now copy the file you created earlier in C:windowsSystem32en-US folder replacing the old file . Now open the “msconfig” utility , click on boot tab and select “No GUI boot” .

Reboot and Enjoy.

    the idea really didn’t seem to work for me. Though
    exciting; each time that I tried to copy the new file
    I got a do not have permission message.
