Windows Boot Logo:::  

Raymond warns all those tweakers against changing the Windows Boot Logo:

DO NOT DO THIS ON A PRODUCTION MACHINE OR YOU WILL REGRET IT.

If you hack the bitmap everything will seem fine until six months down the road when you decide to install the latest service pack. The service pack installer will not upgrade your ntoskrnl because it looks at the file and says "Hm, this isn't the standard uniprocessor ntoskrnl, it's not the standard multiprocessor ntoskrnl, it's not the standard advanced server ntoskrnl, I can't tell what this is, so I don't know which version of ntoskrnl to update it to. I'll just leave it alone."
