Add OEM Information In Vista System Properties...


Recommended Posts

We all know about OEM information in system properties under Windows XP

There are OEMLogo.bmp (96x96) for OEMLOGO and OEMInfo.ini for OEM information used to add under windows XP

Copy both files under X:\Windows\System32\

But In Windows Vista, has been changed the method to add OEM information in System properties.

All things are added through Windows registry instead using OEMinfo.ini file.

Here is some code of registry to add OEM info in Windwos Vista


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

"Model"="Compaq Presario SR1610IL"
"SupportPhone"="1-600-114772 (Toll free), 0124-2346992 (Toll Number)"
"SupportHours"="9 AM to 9 PM (Mon-Sat)"

Here We can see that there is no need to put OEMlogo.bmp file in X:\Windows\System32.

We can locate the file in the any location by setting Logo value

Thanks this is good info.

But in XP for it to even display surely theres some sort of reg value there?

If you put oemlogo.bmp in system32 in XP it shows in the "My Computer" properties.

If you put oemlogo.bmp in system32 in Vista it shows in the "Computer" properties.

I reckon XP must also have a reg setting for that neo. :P

You should be able to do this via autounattend.xml as well. Add oemlogo.bmp to \Sources\$OEM$\$$\System32\oemlogo.bmp on your DVD.

processorArchitecture="amd64" for 64-bit Vista.
