Anyone know how to change the blue background color on the Windows NT4 boot screen?

Been trying to find a solution for this for ages. Havent come across 1 as yet.

Curious if anyone has..

Cheers

Sure, just change this registry key!!!

[HKEY_CURRENT_USERControl PanelColors

Double click on the Background key on the right and enter the "Value data:" for the color you want, ie: 0 0 0 = Black!

Make sure you have a space between each #. :D

Thanks for that, already done that. Wrong window.

I mean the boot screen, the WinNT4 equivalent of a splash screen in Win98 etc. The one that shows Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 (Service Pack 6) 1 Multiprocessor etc etc

Know how to change that?

Cheers

Dave

Modifying the startup screens on Windows NT is the easiest of all.

For WindowsNT, different resolutions are okay. The files are:

C:\winnt\winnt256.bmp -- startup (NT workstation only)

C:\winnt\lanma256.bmp -- startup (NT server)

C:\winnt\lanmannt.bmp -- same bitmap as lanma256.bmp on a default NT server setup

Simply replace those files with the bitmaps of your choice.

I know where you're reffering to and you can't ... at 1996-level WinNT4, it's embedded into Kernel32.dll ... unchangeable, even with Resource Hacker.

And, why care anyway? Just upgrade!
