<h2>Question</h2> <p>I lost the Lenovo/Think welcome screen on the host when I installed VMPlayer with Win 7 x64 as a guest OS, it reverted to the standard Windows welcome screen.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Any idea how to get it back?</p> <h2>Answer</h2> <p>Try Option A and if it doesn't help, switch to Option B.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Option A:</strong></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <ol> <li>Locate the black Lenovo wallpaper picture, which should be located here: <br />C:\Windows\Web\Wallpaper\Think<br /><br /></li> <li>Paste it in this directory: <br />C:\Windows\System32\oobe\info\backgrounds<br /><br /></li> <li>Rename it to 'backgroundDefault'.</li> <li>It must be a JPEG file (the Lenovo Black background is already, though).</li> <li>It should be there the next time you log in</li> </ol> <p>Note: You can change the login screen's background to anything you wish by just substituting the proper image in place of the Lenovo one (size of image must be &lt; 256 Kb.)</p> <p><br /><strong>Option B:</strong></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <ol> <li>Open the Registry Editor and navigate to:<br />HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windos\CurrentVersion\Authentication\LogonUI\Background<br /><br /></li> <li>Make a backup of the registry before you do the next step for you could restore if it goes wrong.</li> <li>Change the value of the key 'OEMBackground' to 1.</li> <li>Other than that, you should be good to go.</li> </ol>
