This only changes the Desktop.
How does one change the Boot Up picture please?
How does one change the background to the Log-on screen?

The images in the boot screen and the welcome screen are part of very important system files
(ntoskrnl.exe and logonui.exe). Hacking/modifying them could render your system unusable. You can
download various modified log-in and boot screens from the internet, but again you run the risk of
leaving your system vulnerable to trojans/worms. Its best not to touch these files.
