    Change XP Boot Screen

    If you would like to change your boot up screen follow the directions below.
    These instructions assume that you have a place to download the boot screen from the net.
    If you would like to download a boot screen, visit http://www.themexp.org

    1. Backup (copy) the file %windir%\system32\ntoskrnl.exe (most likely C:\windows\system32\ntoskrnl.exe - the boot screen)
    2. Download the .zip to your computer
    3. Extract ntoskrnl.exe to a directory other than %windir%\system32 (most likely C:\windows\system32)
    4. Reboot your computer into Safe Mode (hit F8 before the boot screen) or into true DOS (from a boot disk)
    5. Overwrite the file %windir%\system32\ntoskrnl.exe (which should have been backed up) with the extracted exe
    6. Reboot your computer as you normally would

    Rather than have to boot into safe mode you can use BootXP to change it. It also lets you make your own images into a boot screen but remember it will convert it to 16 colors and 640*480 pixels.

    Go here for it and a keygen.

    What im really interested in is
    do you have a tweak for changing the PrePrePreboot Screen -
    the one that says Dell\Siemens\Toshiba\etc
    I have a laptop - so no easy disable in the bios
    ive tried everywhere
    You are my only hope

    My problem is the opposite! XP Pro had cool boot choices with icons, but when I tweked my network settings - I have a boring drop down for users, I tried bootXP and a few others but this must be a setting that I changed and cannot remember.

    Does anyone have a clue of what I am talking about?

    Try searching for bootxp in search tab and if finds sources for your sig it will start quicker.I have recently downloaded it from kazaa and found quite a few sources using the method i just told you.Good luck

    Style Xp is bad ass... as it allows for non verfied themes, and total customization of xp for the most part.

    I currently run a long horn theme from themexp which is just hella purdy.
