    Hi all,

    Just tweaked some new and to me very EyEcandy icons on my MP OSX 10.8.3 and I would like to have all same icons in my bootscreen.

    Hope you like my tweak so far? ;-)

    1. When in Windows 8 Pro x64, how can I change the icon of the BootCamp Windows partition for my bootscreen?

    2. How to do the same for the FW-800 recoverydisks that now has the standard & yellowish HDD icon?

    Anybody succeeded yet doing so?

    Thanks for reading and any directions are much apprecaited.

    Cheers!

    I am pretty sure you can't since those are in the firmware.

    Internal disks, but now I am thinking, I might/am (be) wrong, my internal has a custom Icon and it does show up in the Boot manager.
    If that is the case it is as easy as clicking on the Data Carrier (HD/SSD,..., get info on it and paste the Icon into it.

    Edit: This is in OS X, don't know if it will work in Windows, if it is even possible, if not just do it on the OS X side.

    My icons tweak in OSX, but the HDD partition "WIN8_PROx64" isn't showing as is in the bootscreen so I think this needs to be tweaked in Windows.
