1. Create a Square logo that is almost the same size as the Windows Vista Logo. You can use Windows Photo Gallery in cropping the picture. The exact size is 120x120. But if it is a little bit bigger, no problem, as long as it is a square.
2. Save it as a bitmap (.bmp)
3. Open the registry by typing "regedit" in the Start menu search and Navigate to the following registry path:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\OEMInformation
4. Double Click the Value Name "Logo" and input the path where the logo is being saved.
5. You can change other information's such as SupportURL, Manufacturer and Model.

  Hope this Helps

Hi Meko,

I have already done the above said changes, I am trying to change the word "Manufacture" and replace it with Company/ Asset Owner/ Asset Registered.

Also could you please help me out to find the list of available value for adding more information on system properties.

I truly do not think there is a way to change that.

HI Meko,

Thx for info,
Can you please help me out for adding email link under support coloum.
It would be much better if you could all possible value can share so that i can add one more line as owner and will remain the manufacturer value.

In this registry hive  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\OEMInformation

 There is a place  to change the Support URL. Highlight it and right click and modify.
