Change Boot Screen in windows 8

after a while from using windows 8 and as every one we want to change the boot screen as we did in windows 7 or windows xp...but this time we want some thing special.

Back in June 2011, three Windows 8 builds were leaked to the web. Those builds were packed with a cool Betta Fish boot screen. Many of you might have even seen the pictures and videos of the Betty Fish boot screen. To speed up the boot time, Microsoft removed this boot screen and replaced it with a simple one in Windows 8 Developer Preview build

Users who are looking for a way to enable the beautiful Betty Fish boot screen in Windows 8 Developer Preview will be delighted to know that the old Fish boot screen can be enabled in Windows 8 DP with a simple workaround.  This workaround by our friend 3ricky114 allows you enable the Betta Fish boot screen in Windows 8 Developer Preview build.
The workaround involves replacing a default system files. So, we’d suggest you create a manual system restore point before attempting this procedure on your PC. We tested this workaround on Windows 8 Developer Preview build (x86) and can confirm that it works without any issues.
Step 1: Create a manual system restore point so that you can revert to the original system settings in case anything goes wrong.
Step 2: Open Windows Explorer, navigate to C:\Windows\Boot folder. Here, “C” is your Windows 8 drive letter.
Step 3: Locate Resources folder and then take the ownership of it with the help of our how to take ownership of files and folders in Windows 8 guide.
Step 4: Open Resources folder, rename bootres.dll file to bootresbackup.dll. We are not deleting the original bootres.dll file so that we can return to the original boot screen with ease.

Step 5: Now download the custom bootres.dll file from here. This bootres.dll file has been taken from Windows 8 7989 build.
Step 6: Copy the new bootres.dll file to C:\Boot\Resources folder. Reboot your PC to see the new Betta Fish boot screen. Good luck!
To return to the original boot screen, you can use the previously created restore point or follow the steps given below. Navigate to C:\Boot\Resources folder. Rename bootres.dll (the custom bootres.dll) to bootrescustom.dll. Finally, rename the bootresbackup.dll to bootres.dll. You are done.
