Bizarre question, but most BIOS allow you to select a 'custom' startup screen, but I am not aware of a 'hack' to mislead Windows 'Properties' it reads the BIOS.

I guess you could create a "fake" Computer that is a 'shortcut' to a fake image of System Properties.

I had already looked into the same page and from that place my question arose. Thanks for looking into it. Can you tell me more about the custom startup screen..I have a toshiba satellite and I have wanted forever to change the initial toshiba splash bootup screen to something of my liking...

The "BIOS" screen is a lot more complex to change vs the Boot Screen

Google "change bios splash screen" "toshiba satellite" -stuck

What is your motive for doing this?
to try selling a kitten in a bag as a suckling pig?
I cant see any valid reason why you would want to have misleading information on the bios and system properties, other than to mislead and possibly defraud others.

Not to defraud but mislead yes. A nephew of mine wants a newer configured computer. He knows some stuffs about computer and knows how to view the system configuration using the system properties and dxdiag. My brother told me to look into it so I'm searching for it. Instead of trying to edit the BIOS i think I'll advice my brother to keep password protected bios entry.

If your nephew is half savvy,He'll realise the 'newer' system isn't performing as it should, but good luck anyway :)

^ Who cares, let OP have fun.

bootsplash for xp - that's the easy one to change, the BIOS splash is the difficult one {if possible} to change. It depends upon the BIOS, and OEM {HP, Dell, Toshiba, etc...} are very difficult to impossible. However, you can probably switch it off - most BIOS allow it to be toggled-off.

Goof Luck! ;)
