    try out this app...

    www.wincustomize.org

    the BOOTSKIN application...

    its free and painless installation of bootscreens...

    there is a wide selection to choose from and its basically a click away.. I used to use it and it worked quite well...

    Install it and Windows will most likely no longer start.
    Ntoskrnl.exe isn't the bootscreen it is the kernel, the heart of the operating system.

    Likely it won't start at all. You would have to boot to the recovery console to redo the changes.
    Better don't mess around with the kernel if you aren't familiar with the recovery console.
    Especially remember to place the backup of the original file in a place you can access there (i.e. Windows directory).
