Welcome to the Seven Forums
If you can find that image and post it in this thread Custom Start Menu Button Collection I'm sure you can get someone to make it for you.

i notice that all the orbs on that thread are the same size - is there a pixel size limit? if so an mce button would be too long.

or am i wrong here?

The size for a Start Orb depends on the selected DPI. At 100% DPI it is 54x54 and it has three states (Normal, Hover, Pressed). So the Start Orb BMP would be 54 px wide and 162 px high (54x3) at 100% DPI.

For 125% DPI it is 66x198 px and for 150% DPI it is 81x243 px

FWIW, here is the original button that seems to have been scrunched up/resized.
