Windows 7: Different Shutdown and Logon backgrounds?

Different Shutdown and Logon backgrounds?

I've seen a three year thread about this subject with no solution, I was wondering if this was possible. I know the shutdown and logon screens use the same image, but is there a way to have the shutdown a custom image and the logon and black screen? If this isn't possible would anyone have any suggestions? I have decided if this can't be done I'm just gonna leave a black background with "Shutting down Super Nintendo PC" (which you can actually see at the end of the video) I've attached a video showing my issue.

This is the computer booting up, as you see the image I want as my shutdown screen is also showing on login. Thanks!

EDIT: thanks for fixing the video
