windows Opening Flash

When you start up windows and it plays that flash with the colored balls forming the Microsoft logo, is there any way to change, hack format it?

So far no. It is a system protected area with a digital signature. If you alter the file, it will not work. People have tried to hex edit it without luck. A Guy

It's the Holy Grail of theming Windows 7, lol. If someone is skilled and motivated enough, it may happen, but I don't think most like messing with system protected files like these. Microsoft protected them for a reason as they are in the boot process.

Quote:
The reasons for this should be pretty clear, which is that we cannot guarantee the security of the system to allow for arbitrary elements to be loaded into memory at boot time. In the early stages of starting Windows, the system needs to be locked down and execute along a very carefully monitored and known state, as tools such as firewalls and anti-virus checking are not yet available to secure the system. And, of course, even though we’re sure everyone would follow the requirements around image size, content, etc. due to performance, we would not want to build in all the code necessary to guarantee that all third parties would be doing so
