Solution

The logo should be a BMP file with the dimension of 120x120!
=> Logos larger than 120x120 pixels are scaled to 120x120.

 

Steps:

Click Start, type regedit.exe and press ENTER

Navigate to the following location:
"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ OEMInformation"

Create string values (REG_SZ) and add matching data, as per the table below:
- Logo <Path to your logo file>*
- Manufacturer <System manufacturer name>
- Model <System Model number>
- SupportHours <Support hours>
- SupportPhone <OEM Support Phone number>
- SupportURL <OEM Support URL>

Thats all
