How can the answer be improved? Oct 06, 2015 I found this below to change the boot logo in Windows 8/8.1, but I don't know if it'll work in Windows 10. 8oot Logo Changer Download If you try it, I would recommend to create a restore point first. This way you could easily do a system restore using this restore point to undo if you have any adverse effects. Hi, i got a surface 3 LTE and installed Windows 10 via USB stick. Now the bootscreen shows the windows logo instead of the surface logo during start.
Windows 10 allows you to change the login screen (sign-in screen) and lock screen background image to a custom picture. However, before this, there was no way to change the UEFI boot logo on Windows 10.
If your PC supports UEFI, you likely see OEM’s logo every time you turn on your Windows 10 PC. For instance, if you are using an HP laptop, you will see the HP logo during the boot.
Not everyone likes to see the same UEFI boot logo every time they turn on the PC. Unfortunately, up until now, there was no concrete solution to change the Windows 10 UEFI boot logo as the vendor’s or OEM’s logo is stored in the Boot Graphics Resource Monitor (BGRT) section of UEFI firmware.
HackBGRT: Tool to change Windows 10 UEFI boot logo
HackBGRT is a free utility designed to enable PC users to change Windows 10 UEFI boot logo without must hassle. The HackBGRT makes it possible to change the Windows 10 UEFI boot logo in a few clicks.
As said earlier, the UEFI boot logo is stored in the UEFI firmware which is very hard to change permanently. HackBGRT overwrites this image during each boot to display your custom Windows 10 boot logo.
It’s important to note that HackBGRT must be run computers that support UEFI (check if your PC supports UEFI) and use it only if you are booting with UEFI enabled. The developer of the tool also recommends disabling the Secure Boot.
The image that you want to use as UEFI boot logo must be a 24-bit BMP file with a 54-byte header. If you specify multiple images, you will see random boot logos.
Your Windows 10 PC might become unbootable if anything goes wrong while changing the boot logo. So, try this only if you know what you are doing. Before running the tool, we recommend you create a system restore point or create a full image backup of your Windows 10 installation just to be safe.
Visit the link mentioned below to download the latest version of HackBGRT tool for Windows 10. Note that it’s fully compatible with both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows 10 systems.

Is it possible to change the Windows logo during boot in
Raspberry Pi 2 with
Windows 10 IoT core?
My goal is to show just a splashscreen until the application is loading. I don't want to show Windows logo, but black screen is also bad idea (because of no feedback).In Windows 8/10 tablets I have seen branded boot screen, so it is possible there, but not sure how to achieve this in Windows 10 IoT.
According to Unbranded Boot Overview (Windows Embedded Standard 8):
The only supported way to replace the boot logo in Standard 8 with a custom logo is to modify the Boot Graphics Resource Table (BGRT) on a device that uses UEFI as the firmware interface. If your device uses the BGRT to include a custom logo, it is always displayed, and Unbranded Boot cannot suppress the custom logo.
I know it is for Windows Embedded, but that is the closest article I found about branding.
I don't know how the Raspberry Pi 2 booting works and whether it has UEFI or what. I guess it is at lower level.
