Actually, it's a little hack. You will have to change the configuration in the boot.ini file located in your system folder that is usually hidden. First of all create a 640X480 bitmap image and put it in Windows directory with the name boot.bmp. Then, simply add "/bootlogo /noguiboot" to the boot.ini file configuration. That does the trick. Everytime you boot, you get your own splash screen. There are other many tricks of boot.ini file. You can take advantage of it. It's a big document. So better visit my blog.

Actually, it's very simple. Just open the boot.ini file again. (It's the same tactics). There you will see Boot Timeout that is by default set to 30 secs. Just change it to your desired time. That's it.
