a way to turn off XP theme in nLite without removing it?

I have been trying to find a way to turn off the windows XP 'blue eye candy' (luna) theme on windows bootup pre-login (without removing it!) without success. Turning off the welcome screen does not help... TweakUI allows you to copy your current user settings to the default user profile (that is the one used to determine how windows looks before someone logs in when the system first boots up) but I have been unable to find a way to turn it off before login. I have found the desktop theme section in unattended and set it to windows classic already, that works fine...after the user is logged in.

Ideas? :}

control panel --> display --> appearance tab --> windows and buttons dropdown box --> Windows Classic

OR

Disable Themes: Right-click My Computer --> Properties --> Advanced tab --> Under "Performance," click "Settings" --> uncheck "use visual styles and buttons"

Please tell me how to get to the control panel of an OS that hasn't been installed yet.

I thought posting this in the nLite section would have been enough to make people assume I meant with nLite and that I wanted to do this to the OS pre-install, sorry for assuming...

I know the feeling. :lol:

Add this registry tweak to your registry file...
