    Does anyone know how i can change the icon for the windows partition when booting with the alt key? I already replace the icon under MacOSX but that doesn't have effect. It works fine on the OSX partition, though.

    Anyone? Firmware hacktime?

    The OP already knows how to change the icon in OS X, it's the boot selector that is in question here.

    I changed it using Magnifique under Leopard, upgraded to SL and it still works :p. Don't use Magnifique under SL tho as it has been known to cause kernel panics and the occasional brick, among other things.
