I suppose that is not really what I mean.. That tutorial is just changing the logon background pic. I really want another logon screen with a different log on box options like below

I think that is not possible, I believe that pic to be a result of some Photoshopping, a mockup rather than a real screenshot.

The only thing you can change in logon screen is the background. You can not change the placement or the size of user pics.

Not entirely true Kari.
It is possible to change the whole layout of your Logon Screen.

I have a custom Windows 7 iso installed on my laptop which contains the logon screen as in the video below I think it's close to the one the OP posted a screenshot off

You will need to take ownership of them first

Take Ownership Shortcut

Also, remember to take backup's of the dll's you replace, it probably wont, but it can mess up your Windows 7 install

Okay, I have copied authui.dll, but when I try to copy the background file I get the following error:

0x800704C8

Do you know what that means?
