    I'm sooo close figuring it out!

    If anyone wants to interject and shed some insight to this 'dilemma', feel free to comment!

    I learned through various sources that I was supposed to open the iso installation files and go to the 'sources' folder and change the 'background_cli.bmp' file to the desired image providing the new file was identical in size, name, resolution and bit depth:

    Attachment 44803

    then do the same with the dll:

    Attachment 44804

    but, after 'throwing' it on a new partition, it didn't work!
    Out of ideas!
    (maybe the dll had to be 32 bit!?)
