I had performed the registry edit to enable the startup sound ... that part worked ... but I'm at a real loss to find the actual sound itself. Starting to think it is "embedded" somehow, or it's not a wave file. Any thoughts?
    Same for me, there is this program that can do it for you called "Startup Sound Changer", but people are saying it's unsafe. I just want to play the PS1 startup sound when my computer boots up, but it makes the Windows 7 startup sound, with no way to change it. When you go to Control Panel>Appearance and Personalization>Personalization and you click Sounds, there is no option to change the startup, unlock, or shutdown sound. They simply do not appear. They are, however, Logon, Logoff, and Unlock sounds that appear in the drop-down menu. With the right permissions you might be able to rename whatever wav to "Windows Startup" and replace that file in the destination, you can change the startup sound that way.

    I am the administrator but I do not have these permissions, is there a way to change those?

    I found the Windows Startup wave. You are correct, it can't be changed without digging a little deeper, which I haven't done yet. Curiously, the wave itself is just a "click" sound, it is not the Windows 7 theme, so I didn't even really go any further in trying to change it.
