Change Windows 7 Boot Screen with Windows 7 Boot Animation Updater

a little over one year after the Windows 7 RTM build release, Jeff Bush has released a free tool that does the miracle with a click! Yes, you can now replace the Windows 7 boot animation with a custom one.
Windows 7 Boot Animation Updater is a small tool that allows you change boot animation and texts (Starting Windows and © Microsoft Corporation) in a jiffy.

Key features:
# Modifies the boot animation
# Modifies the boot text “Starting Windows” and “© Microsoft Corporation”
# Will compile the animation from 105 BMP, PNG, GIF, or TIFF images
# Does not require any other applications (like ImageX)
# Designed to be idiot-proof by having numerous checks
# Automatically backs up the modified winload.exe and bootres.dll
# Can be run as a GUI or command-line program
# Works for 32-bit or 64-bit Windows 7
# Numerous other little things (e.g. forcing timestamps) to match the original
Visit the download page for detailed information on how to use this tool.
Note: This tool is still in Alpha stage. So, test this on your own risk!!
