    How do I change that dismal 4 pane blue window before login page?


    How do I change that dismal 4 pane blue window before the login page appears?
    I think everyone knows the one that I'm talking about. It is the absolute first image that appears after a hard boot or restart. I believe that it is the Windows 10 "logo", but it's just ugly 4 pane window near the center of the display "shining" toward the left of the screen.

    It has nothing to do with the login screen display or the lock screen. It is before anything else you see when you perform a hard boot or hard restart
    I changed it successfully in 2018 on my laptop, but for the life of me I can't remember how I did it. I have searched not only in these forums, but for the last 3 days on innumerable websites to no avail.
    Someone please help. I am running Windows 10 Professional Version 20H2.

    Did you use this?

    That depends, there are different ways depending on what type of system you have, Legacy/MBR or UEFI/GPT. both methods are mentioned in this thread.

    Change Boot Logo

    For UEFI you'll need to turn off secure boot and install a tool called HackBGRT. See posts 26 & 27 in that thread.

    You mean the loading circle ?

    I just go to bios & set motherboard manufactuer logo to show & it displays the Aorus image instead of the Win10 logo.

    But thats my way...

    Thanks for your response.
    No not the loading circle itself; the image that appears above it. It's the first image you see when booting from being dead cold. I think Winaero Tweaker can do the job, but I am having trouble finding exact name of the setting...

    Yes that's what I mean the logo changes to Aorus for me but I prefer the Windows logo to stop the paranoia that it's not loading, lol

    Sorry I was not clear enough
