So the title of this post says "WINDOWS 7 - 2015"  Does that mean it also covers Windows 10?  If not, is there a similar guide for Windows 10 somewhere?  This one looks very well written but the text of it only mentioned Windows 7 so I wasn't sure.   Anyone know?

Some stuff from this applies to Win 10, but a lot doesn't.  I've not yet figured out how to do some things in Win 10.

Correct, there isn't a complete win10 tutorial for hiding the OS that I have seen.

This one does not cover windows 10.

This seems to be a good thread for this question.

I have used Windows 7 Boot Updater to change the Windows 7 boot screen, and when the computer is hooked up to an LCD TV you can see the new boot screen.

When I hook the computer up to my WG D9200, it says "Out of Range" during the boot sequence and you can't see anything until Windows completely loads. Even if I use the nobootgui option when booting, it still says out of range. If I try to use the "base video" option in msconfig, it boots up to a black screen that doesn't work.

Any idea how to force Windows to display the boot screen?

So I am still getting the "Welcome" Screen with the background and "Shutting Down" . Which part did I not remove? Everything else is removed.

did you remember to hit the green arrow to compile it after you made the changes, and did you run the mcbuilder?

Also, turn off windows updates, new updates will overlay your work, and cause things to re-appear.

If you still have the welcome you did something wrong with Windows 7 Logon Background changer.
