If you're referring to the XP startup splash screen, here it is:


As far as I've heard, installing SP1 will hinder you from changing it - usually the symptom is the system hardlocking.

I judge you when you use poor grammar.

Default in reference to Win SP-1

Just a bit of comment about running BootXP w/ SP-1... I have patched my machine to WinXP w/ SP1,and as of far it has worked without a hitch for me..

Also keep in mind that im running a slower 500 Mhz machine with the XP update purchased at the store.
A+ Core Hardware, Software Certified (May 13 2005)
the new beast...

AMD Athlon XP 3200+ Barton running at 2.16 Ghz.

LiteOn CD-RW / DVD ROM drive.
currently looking at a litescribe drive at staples, due to its ability to label the CD shortly after being burned.
