Q. How can I change the background image of the Microsoft Systems Management Server (SMS) OS Deployment Feature Pack deployment Windows Preinstallation Environment (WinPE) screen?

A. After you've created the SMS OS Deployment International Organization for Standardization (ISO) file, you'll find a file in the \i386\system32 folder named winpe.bmp. This file is the WinPE background image, and you can replace it with any bitmap image you want. It will be scaled to the resolution of the desktop screen. If you're deploying the CD-ROM content via Remote Installation Services (RIS), you'll find this file in the particular images system32 folder (e.g., D:\remoteinstall\setup\english\images\smsosddeploy\i386\system32). I changed the image to my old SavillTech logo, as the figure shows
