    I'm also interested in the answer - I've seen how to do some of it
    through Windows Automated Installation Kit using the Unattended
    Installation settings
    but not where you can go and manually change it in an already installed
    / deployed system. Also, in XP you could specify more information than
    this article discusses - hopefully we haven't lost that ability in

    After you make the logo put it in your system32 folder. (start computer C
    Windows System32).

    Now open your Registry Editor (Start Run Type regedit then OK)

    Find OEMinformation
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE SOFTWARE Microsoft Windows CurrentVersion

    Now click on OEMinformation

    On the right you will have

    Name Type
    ad(Default) REG_SZ
    (value not set)

    Now right click under default, then new String Value, then name it one of
    string values

    Now double click your new string values, under Value Data type your info to
    match string.

    For you Logo Value, under Value data type C:\Windows\system32\oemlogo.bmp

    String Values


    When your finished it should look like this (you dont have to do them all)

    Name Type
    ab(Default) REG_SZ
    (value not set)
    abLogo REG_SZ
    abManufacturer REG_SZ
    Whatever you want
    abModel REG_SZ
    Whatever you want
    abSupportHours REG_SZ
    Whatever you want
    abSupportPhone REG_SZ
    Whatever you want
    abSupportURL REG_SZ
    Whatever you want
    Now go to system properties and see the changes

    Thanks for the info, I'll give it a go. Are we limited to just the 5
    fields plus the logo? Just curious since in XP we had logo,
    Manufacturer, Model, plus 11 lines of support information which allowed
    us to put our support fax, support email address, machine type and image
    version, etc. It will be a shame if that is gone away now.

    Best regards,

    Works great, thanks again. I tried several ways to get additional
    fields but wasn't successful so I guess we're out of luck for anything
    beyond the 5 fields.
