It's essential that you not modify the Setup folders for bootscreens and the rest.
Otherwise you may have a bad Windows 7 installation

Do not modify the boot screen. The error is the result. You don't want to get to that situation where you will have a BSOD.

A much better way to approach this is to follow the steps in Clean Reinstall Windows 7 to make sure you get a perfect install, do your customizations, install all programs and set everything else up just as you want it, then when it is finished capture a Macrium Imaging - Windows 7 Help Forums backup image stored externally that you can use to recover, or apply to any other PC with our help to Adjust Win7 to boot on new hardware with Paragon Adaptive Restore CD .
