    Customizing dual boot metro icons


    I apologize in advance if this question isn't posted in the right section. Pretty simple question but assuming no real simple answer. I have windows 8 and 7 in dual boot, and use the windows 8 graphical boot menu to toggle between the 2. My question is, is it possible to change the icons. I like the windows 8 flag icon for windows 8 but would like to change the blank icon to the old windows style logo. Any suggestions welcomed.
