    I don't understand what you are asking...

    Do you want to repair or reinstall XP without using an XP install CD? Go to http://bootdisk.com and see what they have available. Without software, this task is not possible or practical

    BootScreen Changing

    Hey man, heheh, i've been down the same road as you, only to realize its way too risky to do it manually, so i went and downloaded "BootSkin" From Wincustomize, www.wincustomize.com where you can choose a ton of free bootskins, and just download them for free, they are small, usually 500 kb to 1mb, and you can download 20 mbs free per 24 hours, so its not bad, but anywho, program is free, and its A LOT safer lol believe me.
