I've had problems with any sound (for any function) other than the default sounds that Windows assigns. Are you using the original default sounds or some other sound?

I am using my own sounds... on two of my themse it works just fine (Reshiram Theme)&(Moltres theme) but none of my other themes custom sounds work on boot up and shut down... I have custom sounds on all dings and errors, hardware insert/remove, & empty recycle bin... all those work, just not start up and shut down... like I said, they test fine in control panel and theme personalization when I click 'test' but they fail to sound during the shut down and boot up process..

I've had the same problem. A custom sound will work in the control panel, but not for actual operations.
