New Windows 7 startup sound

Is it possible to change the startup sound in Windows 7 Home Premium? I have found where you can change the other sounds like Windows Exit, but for the startup sound I can only find where you can turn it on and off.

Thanks for the help but that is too hard for a novice. I will wait for a tweak program to come out that will allow me to change this sound.
