Fantastic tyvm this worked perfectly fine with reshacker . I only tried it with random bmp images but it worked fine which now motivates me to personalise a nice start up image :-)

Good tutorial, easy to follow & fast to do. Thanks Dridzz

Interesting that many are having trouble. I am running 7 Pro 64Bit & using Resource Hacker, tutorial has worked for me no problem on the 1st try!
Didn't try editing the branding just yet, but I may this weekend. Be great if it works, will let everyone know.

Couldn't customize the branding by way of color / wording , but at least I did get rid of it.

Can you expand on that a bit?

I just tried (with Photoshop7) and I get the same as the other poster, its a mish-mash of two bmp's or something.

How exactly do I save the bmp with alpha channel, and where is the alpha channel comming from?

{Edit}...

Ok I see the Alpha channel in the original bmp's extracted from reshacker, when I edited and saved mine, the alpha channel went away.

Also when I edit mine the alpha channel doesn't seem to edit along with the RGB channels (it stays as it was)

So how do I create a new alpha channel out of my own newly edited (RGB channels) bmp?

BTW, alpha channel staying as it was (looking at the channels palet) originally explains exactly what I see on the loging screen where it appears as a mish-mash of two images overlapping.

I removed the win 7 logo from the Welcome screen with the reshacker option. On each reboot I now have to click my name, sfc /scannow finds corrupt unfixable files, and reboot times have doubled. Any way to reverse the process?

Hello Gary,

Since the SFC command was unable to repair the basebrd.dll file to restore it back to default, you could use the tutorial below to extract the basebrd.dll file and any other corrupted file listed in the sfcdetails.txt file from your retail Windows 7 installation disc to replace them in your installation.

Extract Files from Windows 7 Installation DVD

If you like, here's a unmodified copy of the basebrd.dll file from my 64-bit system in a ZIP file below. Be sure to extract and unblock it before copying it into your C:\Windows\Branding\Basebrd folder.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Thanks Shawn, I went the easy non-geeky way and used your basebrd.dll. and replaced my modified one, seemed a lot easier. running sfc /scannow now.
