Changing Your Vista Boot Screen

Note: There are cases when this tweak wont work. I’m really not sure why. I tried this with three Vista computers and two worked fine–the third didn’t work. Let me know if you have any trouble.

Changing your boot screen is simple–just do the following:

  1. Open Vista Visual Master
  2. Click on the Boot Screen tab
  3. Click on Browse, choose a picture, and click OpenChange Your Vista Boot Screen 1
  4. Click Generate. The boot screen will then generate and let you know when it’s done. Press OKChange Your Vista Boot Screen 2
  5. Check Change Boot Screen, click Browse, and click OpenChange Your Vista Boot Screen 3
  6. Click Apply

When you’re ready, reboot your computer to view your new boot screen.
