    Hi there
    I think by changing THIS to a 1 you can put your own picture in the logon -- I haven't tried this yet -- going to bed now but might have another play tomorrow

    open file C:\Windows\Resources\Ease of Access Themes\basic.theme file

    change the SetLogonBackground to 1.

    Cheers

I had this sorted in Win8 RP, and I forgot how I did it. It would load from a cold boot, bypass the log-on screen having to press the picture, and within 1-2 seconds would kill the start screen and literally dump me into the desktop area. Can anyone please help?
