Basically I would like a custom boot screen as opposed to the default windows one. I am running XP Home SP2. I tried using and application called bootskin from Stardock or something. But when I applied the the bootscreens my computer would blue screen when it tried to load windows, so I had to go into safe mode and go back to the default screen. Then I tried to do it Manually editing the boot.ini the the root folder and puting a boot.bmp image in the windows directory. Now this worked sort of, it shows my custom image for a tiny amount of time, but then it just goes to the normal windows loading screen. Does anyone know how I can get rid of the default windows loading screen so that I only have my custom Image? Or know of another program that lets you change the boot screen that actually works? Any help is greatly appreciated!
