remember back in windows xp when you can change oem logo and support information ?
you can do the same in windows vista as easy as creating a simple graphic and a text file.

  1. first of all, create an image file in bmp format with maximum size of 200 x 200 px or if you’re too lazy, go to google images search and search for your favorite images, just remember that it must be maximum 200 x 200 px and in bmp format.
  2. save the as oemlogo.bmp in c:\windows\system32\ folder or other folder as you like (just remember to adjust the value of “Logo” below to the folder where you save your oemlogo.bmp)
  3. open notepad, copy and paste the following registry code (adjust the value to suite your needs) :

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\OEMInformation]
    “Manufacturer”=”http://www.configuration-guide.com”
    “Model”=”XxX”
    “SupportHours”=”24/7/365”
    “SupportPhone”=”800-888 888”
    “SupportURL”=”http://www.configuration-guide.com”
    “Logo”=”C:\\Windows\\System32\\oemlogo.bmp”

  4. save the file as whatever.reg (must be .reg file for easier merge to registry)
  5. double click/run the file and answer yes to merge the value to registry
  6. you’re all done.
