The concept is to change the graphic file in OOBE.

Now let's see if I can find any notes on this.
I did this one my Toshiba.
I assume you are not talking about any display generated by the BIOS but rather by Win 7.

Go to c:\Windows\system32\oobe
Rename background.bmp to background.pmb (or whatever you like)
Replace background.bmp with the background of your choice, just convert it to a bmp and rename it background.bmp.

I think I recollect that only the name background is important and that you can actually use a jpg file but I won't swear by it.

My problem is that awhile back I did a 100% reinstall and haven't worried with replacing the background since then.

Does this help?

Sorry about that.

Do not know the solution to that one.

Perhaps, just perhaps, the Toshiba folks have an answer for you but I fear that what you are seeing is being displayed by the bios during power on self-test (POST).

I'm sure that they know the answer but I am pretty sure that they are not going to give it out :P

I don't think so mate. what you mean is the Brand which is the BIOS splash screen right?. That thing splash in second and to modify it just so your eyes comfortable to see might not be a good idea. It system BIOS and i don't recommend you to do it. Cheers mate

i know what do you mean :P

but the idea of changing just the font of "Toshiba The leading innovation" it's stuck on my mind :P

I think for changing the boot logo, the file is C:\Windows\System32\en-US\winload.exe.mui. You probably need to modify it using Resource Hacker. Ask the grafix geeks.

Also, see this page.
