Windows Home Premium 64bit

First post, but a long time lurker.

This tutorial is helpful but I have a few questions. I currently have a theme that I like and I don't like the Dark7mix theme. The theme I am using doesn't have a custom background for the start menu like Dark7mix does.

Is it possible for me to add the customized start menu png from the Dark7mix theme into the theme I'm currently using? And how do I do so?

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
