Boot screens that use BootSkin are typically under 20K compared to other boot screen programs whose files are over 2 MEGABYTES.

See dis for more details


Method 2:

Resource Hacker

Open Resource Hacker and press ctrl+o now go to your Windows directory and then open System32 folder,and search for NToskrnl.exe file ,click on open.

See this screenshot for help :

Change XP Boot Screen
After opening expand Bitmap and you can change the bootscreen by replacing the default bitmaps to your own created bitmaps.
Press ctrl+s and you are done.Now reboot your PC and see now you will see your own boot screen and not the default one.

Method 3:(Not Recommended)

These instructions assume that you already have the boot screen(ntoskrnl.exe) downloaded from net.

1. Backup (copy) the file %windir%system32ntoskrnl.exe (most likely C:windowssystem32ntoskrnl.exe – the boot screen)
2. Download the .zip to your computer
3. Extract ntoskrnl.exe to a directory other than %windir%system32 (most likely C:windowssystem32)
4. Reboot your computer into Safe Mode (hit F8 before the boot screen) or into true DOS (from a boot disk)
5. Overwrite the file %windir%system32ntoskrnl.exe (which should have been backed up) with the extracted exe
6. Reboot your computer as you normally would
