Win 7 Mod : Change OEM Information in Windows 7
Scenario : You want to add some extra info in your Windows System properties Dialog box. Maybe change the logo too.
Solution : With the help of this hack, you can get some extra information and a personalized logo in Vista and 7 System Properties dialog box. It is quite similar to the good old “OEMLogo.bmp” and “OEMInfo.ini” files replace trick in windows XP (which sadly no longer works in Vista and 7).
Here is a screenshot of Windows 7 System Properties dialog box with customized strings:
So here we go:
1.) Open regedit and goto:
Under this key, look for a key OEMInformation. If it doesn’t exist, create it.
2.) Now select OEMInformation key and in right-side pane, create following String values and set their values as shown below:
Logo – path_of_OEMlogo.bmp_file(It has to be a bitmap file)
Manufacturer – Any_desired_name
Model – Any_desired_name
SupportHours – Any_desired_time_amount_like_24x7
SupportPhone – Any_desired_phone_number
SupportURL – Any_desired_URL
NOTE: OEMlogo.bmp file should be 96×96 in size and can be placed at any location.
3.) Now open System Properties (right-click on My Computer icon on desktop and selectProperties), you’ll see your the entries there. The logo will be shown in right-side of “System” section.
