You are merely inserting an image into space reserved for such, so there's really not alot of drama here. Of course, there's a maximum size of the miage, but really, for something you see for 1-2 seconds when the pc first boots up, is it really worth the hassle, or just a gimmick?

actually 64bit take some time to load window xp 64 (total about 5-10 seconds with lots of disable features such as express gate, ATA IDE, etc)

2 second to show up the image...


well i dont like default image... it looks so stupid... if mylogo is dangerous and i dont want to order chip for 20 then i disable image boot...
