Windows 7: How do I customize the BitLocker key screen txt?

How do I customize the BitLocker key screen txt?

I am trying to find a way a edit the bitlocker text that appears if I don't have my USB key plugged in. I hate the fact that it says my drive is encrypted with bitlocker and here is the key it is looking for.

I just want to change it to say something to the order of "You are not getting in without correct permissions!", or "Stop trying to steal my data!"

Something other than Microsofts default text would be preferred.

Thanks in advance.

I don't know how to take a screen capture since this screen appears prior to booting. If you do not have the USB drive with the BitLocker key inserted it displays a message stating that the drive is encrypted with BL. It also states to insert the media that contains the key and then displays the name of the key that it is looking for.

If you literally mean before booting then that's tucked away in BIOS and far beyond human power to change I'm afraid. And the same is pretty much true if it's actually during Windows initialisation. Attempts to make changes there tend to end in disaster. Looks like you'll have to put up with the original prosaic turn of phrase. Sorry.
