What you need is the OEM Preinstallation Kit. This can be found on the OSR2 CD Rom in the \Admin subdirectory. This and other similar documents can be obtained right on the Microsoft OEM site at http://oem.microsoft.com. When you purchased your OEM OSR2, you should have received a diskette that has the installation wizard on it. The wizard fully explains the process. If you didn't receive this diskette, you can create the wizard files this way.

On a running system, insert the osr2 cd rom disk in the drive. Click start, run and then type: (presuming that your cd rom drive is drive "D", if it's a different drive letter, change the syntax accordingly)

D:\MKCWRT /C:"COMMAND.COM /C MKCWRT.BAT D: C:\WIZARD"

This will put the Wizard in a subdirectory called "Wizard". Create a shortcut to OPKWIZ.EXE and then you can create any setup you desire. You will have create a bitmap though for any logo you intend to use.

If you need more, just ask.

Best regards,
Dennis

Sorry about that Superfranco, but really you had that info in your windows 95 help file. You can generate a bmp file from almost anything you want!
