Yes, you can create one yourself! Windows 7 boot & logon screens look great compared to Vista. You can be a holdout and use Vista based freebies that do a surprisingly good job of implementing Windows 7 screens (boot & logon) in Vista as well.
In this guide, we use a small and free utility called Vista Visual Master. Few months back, we had reviewed Vista Visual Master. Using Vista Visual Master is easy but we are giving the entire procedure to create and use Windows 7 (logon & boot) screens in Vista.
As you might know, because of the limitations in Vista boot screen we can’t give the exact look of Windows 7 boot screen to Vista. So, we thought of creating simple boot screen.
Download Vista Visual Master from here. Also download the wallpaper of Windows 7 logon and boot screens which we are going to use in our guide.
Create custom boot and logon screen for Vista#Install and Run the Visual Master.
Step 1: In the left pane of Visual Master, click on “Logon Picture”.
Step 2: Browse the Windows 7 logon wallpaper from your drive (which you have downloaded) and click “Apply” to apply this as your logon screen.
Step 3: Next, switch to “Boot Screen” option in the lift pane, and browse for the picture. Here, you need to generate the boot screen to apply any screen as your boot screen. To do this, click on the “Generate” button and save it in your Desktop.
Step 4: Now, browse the generated boot screen and click “Apply”. Note that you will not see the moving bar of Windows 7 here as Vista doesn’t support it.
So, you have created and installed Windows 7 logon and boot screens in Vista as well. If you have any doubts, feel free to ask by leaving comments.
