I'm looking for a way to create a custom logon screen for Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Server 2008. (Logon Screen, I mean: http://www.microsoft.com/library/media/1033/windowsxp/images/using/setup/tips/advanced/67466-click-ok-log-on-to-windows.gif
I know how to do this for Windows XP and Server 2003 via msgina.dll but after a brief 30 minutes of googling and reading I'm finding the only 'accepted methods' are using a program called 'Logon Studio' in conjunction with 'Vista Boot Image Generator'.
I'm not fond of installing programs unnecessarily. Especially on fresh installs. I would rather have a simple file swap (change a bitmap embedded in a dll, for example) and possible a registry key if I want to preserve the original.
Anyone know how?
