    What about using some of these as windows boot screens? How would that work?

    I dont use mp2 yet as im still in the process of making sure MP1 is user friendly for the family but i would evently like to make hope for all the rooms and change/ hack the boot screen of windows to show mp2 so no one knows that it is a pc but thinks it more like a DVD/cable box. I know there are some made for this purpose. But i was wondering if there could be an option to enable such things as a plugin for MePo 2.


    Edit:

    Maybe this is the wrong thread

    I just moved the thread for you, hopefully the title is okay? :)

    About the topic I know Stardock had such tools in the past, but I am not sure if there are any tools that could do this via commandline etc. and on which operating systems these tools are working.

    I'm not pro at development but maybe I can figure out a way to make it easier for people to set this up. I know a lot of members don't mind hacking but for everyday people that are interested in branding their pc for this purpose.
