You can replace the default Windows XP Boot Logo without hacking.
(* Note: Not an animated logo.)

Use one of our provided Legacy Boot Logo's or create your own.
* Note: boot.bmp must be 640x480 and 16 colors.

Save boot.bmp to the Windows folder.
(Example: C:\Windows\boot.bmp)
Windows 1.01
Windows 2.03
Windows 3.0
Windows 3.1
Windows 3.11

Right Click the My Computer icon.

Left Click Properties on the menu.

Click the Advanced Tab.

Under Startup and Recovery, click the Settings button.

Under System startup, click the Edit button.
(* This will open the boot.ini file.)

Type /bootlogo /noguiboot after /fastdetect.
(Note: Excluding the /noguiboot will show the new image briefly prior to the standard Windows Boot Logo.)

Click File > Save on the menu.

Exit Notepad.

On the Startup and Recovery dialog, click the OK button.
