Windows 8.1 Industry Pro <> desire black screen on startup and shutdown RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are using Windows 8.1 Industry Pro.  We have unbranded it and replaced the shell with our application. We changed the theme from the default blue to black but occasionally on startup and shutdown, a solid light blue screen (the new blue screen color in Windows 8) still flashes for half a second. Is there a way to set this to black?

  • You need to set the "VisualEffects->SystemDefaultBackgroundColor" in your answer file (Pass 7 - OOBE) to one of the color schemes as descriped in the ICE help for "SystemDefaultBackgroundColor".

    Alternatively you can set following Registry Key:

    Key = HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Accent
    Type = REG_DWORD
    Value = {a number from 0...24}

    I hope I could help.

    Best regards,
