Not a feature which Microsoft supports.
It's the MS bootmgr display, nothing to do with EasyBCD.
EasyBCD just manipulates the entries which Microsoft displays, it has nothing to do with the generation of the image.
You can use grub4dos as an alternative bootloader

which will support custom images.

Or grub2 if you really want to customize. Look around and you'll see some pretty neat stuff, may take a bit of work though.

Thanks Terry60 & JustinW for your replies.
I was hoping that easybcd might have a way to do this. I've been using grub for years to overwrite the xp mbr and get a cool boot splash screen but this time I'm using win 7 and don't feel comfortable doing the same thing. Thought I'd try easybcd to preserve the mbr. Thought there might be something similiar to the tweaklogon screen I use for the windows logon page for the boot splash.
I'll check out the grub for dos although when I click on your link it tells me I don't have permission...google is your friend...

Thanks again guys.

Sorry, I was linking you to an image which was in a thread in the mod forum, hence no permission.
It was just a picture of my custom logon screen, not vital info.

Awesome, Terry,
How did you do that?
Grubfordos?
Would love to use a personal pic for the boot screen...

Easiest way is to just install HnS that Terry linked to, then edit the image that comes with it, replacing it with your own.

That way you don't need to do any of the hard stuff yourself.

thanks Terry & cg!
I am all about avoiding the hard stuff, also curve balls and sliders..;>)

I'll check it out. Sounds like what I'm looking for.

ps. Is 61 the most recent build for HnS?

Thanks again!
