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).

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
