    Your Mac has it. All Macs must have it in order to boot. Its in /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/. I suggest using BootXChanger to change the boot logo. Its a bit easier then editing files.

    Your Mac does indeed have one. Without it, your Mac wouldn't boot at all. Do you by chance have a non-Apple machine running Mac OS X?

    No actually. The app didn't work in the first place so i went to /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/ (it wasn't in there). Once i downloaded the file and stuck it in there the app then worked. And yes i tried several times and it wouldn't work so it wasn't something i did wrong in the first place. Before asking if anyone her had it i searched google and its a common problem.
