How can we customize the boot screen in Windows Embedded 8.1 Industry?

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?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Look for "Unbranded startup screens" in microsoft embedded site.

In Image Configuration Editor, under the Operating System\Edition Branding category, locate the Unbranded Startup Screens package.
Add the package to your answer file (Unattend.xml).

David, is this a feature in Windows Embedded 8.1 Industry?  If so, does it allow one to replace the startup screens rather than simply remove them?
