We are developing an industrial controller which will be a purpose-built appliance, not a general purpose Windows machine. Every aspect of Windows Embedded 8.1 Industry is geared towards this approach except for the ability to customize the displays shown during boot up.
We need to have our company logo, or at least a progress bar, display on screen while the OS is loading. Otherwise, our customers would only see a blank screen, which they may perceive as being the result of a malfunction.
How do we accomplish this?
